Wild & Crazy Taco Night
Guest Names

Now in its 23rd year, Wild & Crazy Taco Night™ has become one of the most popular events in Orange County! Get ready for a fun and festive evening where 26 of Orange County’s finest chefs and restaurants each prepare an unusual and unique taco. The chefs’ creativity is endless and the food leaves guests talking for the rest of the year!

You don’t want to miss the pre-event VIP Party! Participating guests will enjoy early admission into the event and will have the opportunity to meet all of the chefs and sample their tacos before the general event begins. The VIP Reception has sold out each year.

Event proceeds benefit the SOS Food Pantry, feeding more than 230 Orange County families each day. Ticket price includes all-you-can-eat tacos and assorted beverages (margaritas, beer, soda, water).
