Margarita & Salsa Festival

Date: Aug 26, 2017

Good News, Hurricane Harvey will not keep us from celebrating the 22nd Annual Margarita & Salsa Festival!

After consulting with local meteorologist, we have determined that the best course of action for the Margarita & Salsa Festival is to move inside. The threat is primarily from high winds that would force us to not use the outside stage. This move allows us to have the event no matter the weather and keep everyone safe and happy.

The basic layout is the Margarita & Salsa Contest in the Extraco Coliseum, Concert in the Show Pavilion Arena and VIP in the Covered Arena (same place as always). VIP parking will remain on the Lake Air side and VIP guest will enter the VIP area as they have in the past on the west end of Covered Arena. All other festival-goers will enter from the front of the Coliseum.

Thank you for your continued support of the Margarita & Salsa Festival and ultimately the Heart O’ Texas Fair & Rodeo Scholarship Fund.

Make plans now to attend the biggest, coolest, hottest party of the summer – the 22nd Annual Margarita & Salsa Festival happening on Saturday, August 26, 2017, at the Extraco Events Center in Waco. All proceeds benefit the Scholarship Program at the Heart O’ Texas Fair & Rodeo. This is one of the larger music events on the Waco calendar with an average of 10,000 attendees and a summer send-off for thousands before college classes begin. So if you dig margaritas and great country music (who doesn't, right?), then mark your calendar.

The Margarita & Salsa Contests are back this year. The contests will take place in the cool air conditioning of the Extraco Exhibits Building. Any restaurant or business interested in putting their salsa recipe to the test can still sign up, contact Christy Jones directly at christy@hotfair.com. Margarita contest is full and now closed. Salsa tasting is FREE to the general public and margarita tasting cups can be purchased for $10. Please join us as we see who has the best salsa and margaritas in town.
