Salsa and Tequila Challenge


Are you up for the challenge? On August 20, the annual Salsa and Tequila Challenge kicks off for the 21 and over crowd. Located at La Encantada Shopping Center on E. Skyline Drive, the event begins at 7pm, and general admission tickets are $55. The craft of cocktails is matched with the best culinary delights in Tucson during the Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance’s most beloved event. You’ll find popsicles infused with tequila, alcoholic sno-cones, and of course many mixed drinks. Try the kimchi and blueberry jalapeño salsas and a variety of other unique combinations.

Every year, more than 1,500 attendees flock to the hottest challenge in August with proceeds benefitting the local community. Here, you’ll see top mixologists and chefs show off their finest skills. It’s a cultural experience complete with live entertainment and music that showcases the diversity of Tucson.

So Much More than Food

With your ticket, you’ll get up to 50 tastings of salsas and chips along with more than 30 tequila samples. There are also a number of other food samples, beer tastings, and of course desserts that are made to pair with the real stars of the show. There are no ticket sales at the door, so make sure you order yours in advance here.

Ticket sales end on August 19, and this is an event that often sells out. Make sure you’re covered and get those reservations in early, because it’s almost tequila time!
