Description

The founders of the Arizona Taco Festival are partnering with The Camby to throw an exciting event on National Guacamole Day, September 16, 2017, called Rock The Guac. The event will pit more than 12 of the Valley’s top chefs against each other in a friendly culinary battle while providing a festive way for guacamole fans to “rock out with their guac out.” This fiesta also marks the final countdown until the Arizona Taco Festival at Salt River Fields on October 14-15, 2017.

Tickets to Rock The Guac cost $40 and come with unlimited guacamole samples, a gourmet taco station provided by The Camby, and two drink tickets good for Casa Noble margaritas and Corona cervezas.
