A celebration of San Diego’s Taco—veganized! We’re bringing some of our best talent head-to-head in a hand-held, salsa drizzled, event where the animals are winners.

Vegan in San Diego is taking over the Fair @ 44—a not-for-profit community gathering space by the City Heights Economic Development Collaborative—for an evening of local favorites and soon-to-be favorite vendors competing in a Vegan Taco Cook Off where you can be the judge!

Date and Time: Saturday, November 4, 2017, 4:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Location: Fair @ 44 — 4350 El Cajon Blvd, San Diego, CA 92105


  • SOLD OUT – Crowd Judge ($20): Limited amount! Admission at 4:00 p.m. Tickets get you a voting ballot and one taco from the six competing vendors—only the competing cook-off tacos will be served during this period. Ballots are due at 5:30 p.m.
  • General Admission ($5): Admission at 5:30 p.m. Access to all vendors selling the balance of their menus.


  • 4:00 – 5:30 p.m.: Official and Crowd Judges eat and compete.
  • 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.: Gates open to full vendor menus. General admission, music, and maximum taco engorgement lies ahead.


Jordan Russo (Farm Animal Refuge), Kevin Cantrell (The Capybara Experiment), Beto Perez (Energy 103.7), and hopefully you!

DJs will be spinning tunes throughout the night: Dash Eye, DJ Thirdrail, DJ Mike Czech, and DJ Unite.

A portion of proceeds will be donated to Let’s Give Movement supporting the people of Mexico and Puerto Rico in their reconstruction efforts.

Stay tuned for vendor announcements!
