Do you like tacos? How about an ice cold margarita? Maybe a brewski or two? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’re going to want to set a reminder in your phone right now so you don’t forget about the Taco, Beer and Margarita Festival being put on by Beers In Sac and the Fair Oaks Village Enhancement Committee on Saturday, Aug. 11 at Plaza Park (7003 Park Drive, Fair Oaks). Starting at noon and wrapping up around 8 p.m., this free and family friendly event is also open to well-behaved dogs! Be sure to bring cash because you’ll want to hit up some of Sacramento’s best taco vendors (like Masa Guiseria, Azteca Street Tacos, Bambi Vegan Tacos and others), multiple beer trailers serving craft beer—domestic and imported—and a full service margarita bar. There will also be an interactive kids area, mariachi bands, traditional dance performances and more. Check out or for more info.
