Mexican culinary celebration fills Victoria Public Market

Taco, Tequila and Margarita Fiesta takes over the Victoria Public Market the evening of Nov. 16

A taste of Mexico comes to the Victoria Public Market on Nov. 16, as the Taco, Tequila and Margarita Fiesta brings food, fun and musical entertainment that’ll make it feel like a Puerto Vallarta Saturday night.

Headlining the music side of things is Mariachi Los Dorados from Vancouver, plus Victoria’s Fiesta Latina Folklore Dancers and DJ Boitano will keep the festivities lively.

Staged by Truffles Catering and Taco Stand, the fiesta runs from 7-11 p.m. and allows you to pair all kinds of flavourful food and drink. Not only is Phillips Brewing Co. creating an original cerveza for the event, Truffles’ spirit specialists are hosting a tequila tasting and education on site that will help participants better understand the complexity of this spirit and the wide variety of options out there.
