The sixth-annual ultimate Tito’s extravaganza will return to Culver City this October.
On Oct. 4, Tito’s Tacos and Tito’s Handmade Vodka will come together to present Tito’s Fiesta Mexicana in celebration of both National Taco Day and National Vodka Day.
A day of food, fun and charity, funds raised by the event go toward supporting the Culver City Arts Foundation and has raised $66,000 over the past years. The nonprofit, also known as Culver Arts, supports local artists and arts organizations and works to preserve the past, enrich the present and create the future of arts and culture in Culver City.
Taking place at Tito’s Tacos, Tito’s Fiesta Mexicana will be from 4 to 9 p.m. and attendees can expect tacos, specialty cocktails and live entertainment. Helmed by comedian Eric Schwartz (a.k.a Smooth-E), the day is set to feature seven hours of traditional Mexican entertainment by premier mariachi performers, including Grammy-nominated Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles; heavy metal mariachi band Metalachi and Mariachi Juvenil Herencia Michoacana. The lineup also includes folklorio dancers like DanzArts/Sabor, a Mexico Dance Company.
Tito’s Fiesta Mexicana offers two types of admission. For those aged 21-plus, the Responsible Partygoer ($30) includes admission to the event, three Tito’s Tacos food items and three Tito’s Handmade Voda specialty cocktails. Meanwhile, the Non-alcohol Partygoer ticket includes admission, three food items and soft drinks. Tickets are now available.
Tito’s Tacos has been a longtime, beloved establishment of Los Angeles. Known for its signature hard-shell taco, the Mexican restaurant was founded in 1959 by Benjamin Davidson and is now run by his granddaughter, Lynne Davidson. With original recipes at the center of the menu, thousands descend upon Tito’s daily for the likes of crispy beef tacos, tamales, burritos, enchiladas, tostadas and more.
Tito’s Tacos is located at 11222 Washington Place 90230.
