No other food festival puts as many wonderful things under one roof and still gives you room to breathe. Your ticket includes everything! Come meet and eat with the chefs and beverage community that make the San Francisco Bay Area a top dining destination in the world. Experience the deliciousness for yourself. This is your year to join us.

Now heading into its third year, Taco Knockdown is the fun and delicious launch of Eat Drink SF festival weekend. Top restaurant chefs compete in a creative battle for the ‘Taco Title’. Last year’s winners will be back to defend their titles with a new panel of judges and guests to vote on the Best Overall and People’s Choice winners. There will be “tacos”, tacos, and tacos? It’s a whimsical battle of foldable food honoring the legacy of The Taco.
