Capitalize on the beautiful weather and early summer feels with the Tacos, Margaritas and Beer Festival on May 5, from 6 to 10 p.m.  

Presented by The Links at RiverLakes Ranch, the same group that brought you the Beer and Wine festival last summer, the Tacos, Margaritas and Beer Festival is a “backyard fiesta” that delivers everything that’s promised in its name and more.

Tacos from Hacienda Guerrero and barbecue from Brooklyn’s BBQ will be available along with beer provided by Advanced Beverage and two margarita makers. Entertainment comes courtesy of Lonely Avenue and DJs.

“There is going to be dancing, live music. There is a premium silent auction … all the way from jewelry to entertainment, music to sports memorabilia. It’s really great stuff,” said DeeJae Holmes, a member of the Tacos, Margaritas and Beer Festival planning committee.

Holmes expects there to be some type of discount on the back of the punch card for car services or at least have car services ready if needed. However, they will not be included with the tickets.

Tickets are $40 with a VIP option available for $100. The VIP tickets include early access to the event, their own private room, a personal drink server, a souvenir glass, unlimited food and six premium drink tickets. General admission receives a punch card with six beer and margaritas tastings.

A portion of the proceeds will go to League of Dreams, a charity that has been involved with several RiverLakes programs.

League of Dreams is an adaptive sports league for children with disabilities. It provides them with opportunities to play the sports they love. Sponsorship will be open until the day of the event. For more information on how to become a sponsor and what types of sponsorships are available, call Executive Director Jessica Mathews at 661-616-9122.
