Try some tacos, tequila and live music this weekend in Royal Oak

Royal Oak Taco Fest producer Jon Witz says the evolution of food trucks and festivals has created a new atmosphere for supporting small business and shopping locally.

The first-ever Royal Oak Taco Fest is happening now through the Fourth of July. The inaugural event offers a deliciously fun-filled weekend with tacos, tequila, live local music and other family entertainment.

Jon Witz is the producer of the Royal Oak Taco Fest. He says there will be something for everyone to do during the weekend.

“This is just going to be a ton of fun. With 40 different kinds of tequilas and 40 different taco trucks, that is going to be a great time.”

Witz says the evolution of food trucks and festivals has created a new atmosphere for supporting small business and shopping locally.

“These are very creative culinary family-owned businesses that just thrive on having events like this.”

The event is sponsored by Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort and the Royal Oak Downtown Development Authority. Witz says anyone interested should head over to the Royal Oak Taco Fest website.

The festival will take place from 4-11 p.m. Friday, from 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday.

“[We’re] just expecting great times, and a great Fourth of July weekend featuring of all things tacos.”
