Everyone loves tacos, and Corpus Christi offers a great way to celebrate the dish. The ¡Que Bueno! Taco Fest on Sept. 14 celebrates the food and culture in the city and in Mexico through taco-themed events and exhibitions like a taco poetry slam, taco art and murals, and taco contests. There is also live music throughout the day (complete with songs about tacos) and lots of opportunities to try all different types of tacos: contest categories include best breakfast taco, best dessert taco, and most creative taco. This event helps fund restoration projects on the historic Ritz Theatre and the Artist Nurturing Program which assists artists in Corpus Christi.
