We are busy planning our third annual Vegan Taco Cook-off, on a mission to name San Diego’s best vegan taco of 2019! Two titles will be awarded: Judge’s Prize and People’s Choice. This year, each winner will also receive a $50 award.

Interested potential contestants will be able to apply to compete with our contestant application at the bottom of this page.

We will update this page frequently during our planning process, and will announce far and wide as soon as tickets are available for purchase. For now, please save the date for August 11, 2019 for our third event!

A portion of proceeds from this event will be donated to a San Diego-based nonprofit.
