A Weekend of Tequila and Tacos Comes to Seascape Towne Centre in March

The wildly popular Eli Young Band performs at the Village Door Music Hall Saturday, March 7.

Seascape Towne Centre kicks off the spring event season with three days of culinary events at the 7th Annual Tequila & Taco Fest March 6-8. This premier event has grown significantly since being founded in 2012 by Carlos Shaffran, who says, “Guests from all over the southeast come to celebrate this unique event on the Emerald Coast.”


Make plans for a festive Friday, with an evening of Bocadillo and Margarita welcome party at Mezcal Bar & Grill. Signature Margaritas made with Corralejo Tequila, creative small plates and live music kick off the weekend March 6, from 6 to 9 PM.


“We are excited to be the new host venue for this popular event, and we look forward to continue to be part of the growth year after year,” says Ron Mote of Seascape Towne Centre. “We strive to create new, one-of-a-kind experiences for our guests to enjoy.”


On Saturday, March 7, from 1 to 5 PM, sip and savor during a flavorful afternoon featuring a large selection of award-winning Tequilas and Margaritas, and a variety of chicken, beef, pork, fish and authentic Latin tacos. Over 20 local restaurants will compete for the top prize of $2,500 for the Best Taco on the Emerald Coast.


With over 40 different Tequilas and Margaritas for sampling, guests will have the opportunity to try smoky and sweet agave flavors as well as different varieties of Tequila including Resposados, Blancos and Anejos. High-end tequilas, including Don Julio and Patron, will be available in the VIP area.


This year’s event includes live music from DJ Vasco and Salsa Band and Merengue 4, face painting for the little amigos, and a Chihuahua beauty contest. Plus—show off your football arm by tossing the longest tortilla!


A post-festival concert with country superstars Eli Young Band happens at the Village Door Music Hall. Doors open at 7 PM, and tickets start at $30.


The weekend concludes Sunday, March 8, with a Bye-Bye Brunch at Acme Oyster House from 11 AM to 2 PM.


Plan a Stay & Sip weekend at the Seascape Golf Beach & Tennis Resort and enjoy being steps away from the festivities. This year’s festival features an exclusive VIP Weekend Package including:

  • Weekend accommodations at the Seascape Golf Beach & Tennis Resort.
  • VIP tickets to the Signature Welcome Pre-Party Friday and a VIP ticket to the Tequila & Taco Fest Saturday.
