After a wildly popular event last year, My Athens and Terrapin are bringing the Taco Takedown back, with 10+ vendors all competing to win the Golden Cholulua Bottle for People's Choice in tacos!

The big day arrives Sunday, October 16, from 4:30-8 p.m. at Terrapin Brewing Company.

Don't miss out on one of our most beloved events of the year. Tickets are already going fast, so make sure you get yours before they sell out!

The event will once again feature a gallery of taco-themed art, submitted by Athens artists, as well as 16+ beers in the tap room, plus a special cask of Habanero Rye Pale Ale. Participants are still being announced. So far, we have The Pine, Catch 22 Gastropub, South Kitchen + Bar, The Savory Spoon, The World Famous, Taqueria Tsunami and Taqueria del Sol.

To enter:
1. Post your taco art to Instagram with the hashtag #athenstacotakedown by October 1.
2. Email a high-res file of your submission to rachel@myathensis.com, also by October 1.
3. Our winner will be announced October 3 and will receive two tickets to the event and a big shout-out on the @my_athens feed.

By submitting your taco art for consideration in this contest, you give My Athens your permission to feature your work on our own Instagram feed (with attribution, of course!) and also to print copies of your work for display in the Taco Art Gallery on-site at the event.
