The Phoenix Tequila Fest gathers together bartenders, mixologists, agave farmers, performers, and tequila enthusiasts for a two-day festival devoted to distilled goodness. There are countless booths offering tequila samples, which come from numerous brands, distilleries, and varietals around the world. But it’s not simply about sampling; festival-goers can also cheer on their favorite bartenders in the Margarita Challenge, fine-tune the art of describing tequila, and learn about the newest trends in flavor manipulations. Continuous live entertainment creates a festive atmosphere, and complimentary Mexican foods—such as taquitos, chimichangas, salsa and chips, and shrimp ceviche—from the Valley’s restaurants ensure that revelry last the entire afternoon.
