Yakima Taco Fest 2022 was one for the ages! I had so much fun and I didn't want it to end. First of all, I was so lucky to have a VIP ticket because that meant I could get in after 11 a.m. and avoid those long lines. Unfortunately for me, I dilly-dallied too long putting on my makeup and arrived at the event close to 1 p.m. I got there too late and so I ended up waiting in a long line for tacos and beverages! Whoops!

I arrived at the same time as my co-worker and his girlfriend so we hung out together for a while. We walked in and saw that the crowd was moderately light, which was great. We looked at all of the booths which included beverage tents, taco trucks, dessert trucks, a swag booth, and a photo booth.

I saw that one particular taco tent line that was extra long, Avenida Cantina. I thought to myself, they must be really good if all of these people are in line to get one; let me go ahead and wait in this line now so that I won't have to wait for it to get any bigger.

That was a big mistake because I ended up waiting in that line for over one hour and 45 minutes! I made the best of it though, I got to make some new friends with the people who were in front of me in line and they kept me cracking up the whole time. I finally got to get a chicken taco at the Avenida Cantina booth. It made my mouth water.

The DJ music was so amazing at Yakima Taco Fest 2022! DJ Garin Moore opened up the crowd and he was playing and jam after jam. I kept touching my Shazam app to identify the songs he was playing. I was in heaven and the music reminded me of a trip I took to Miami once.

My favorite taco was from the 5 Salsas food truck, and their chicken mole taco was my hands-down favorite. My second favorite was the shrimp taco at the Fiesta Foods truck!

Did you get to go? Which one was your favorite? And did you try the Cherry Moonshine Margarita from Swede Hill Distilleries? That was my favorite drink of all at Yakima Taco Fest 2022. There were probably many great other beverages and tacos that were better but I ended up goofing around with my friends and didn't get to visit every booth. Once the rain started pouring hard, I got out my Harry Potter umbrella and left the taco stand, so to speak!

I am looking so forward to Taco Fest 2023. Hope to see you there!
