National Taco Association Festivals Thu, 06/17/10 3:14 AM (permalink)
AMERICA!! What a country!! We have an Association for every aspect of our lives and every special interest group imaginable. I thought I'd heard it all when I learned about "The Black Cowboy's Assn of NJ" and then here comes the National Taco Association! www.nationaltacoassociation.com You can go to the web site and become a member ___IT's FREE!
 
The NTA has scheduled a series of taco championships across the country over the next year, to promote the NTA and taco love. The first scheduled event is in downtown Scottsdale Arizona on October 9th, 2010 – www.aztacofestival.com, immediately followed by Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Austin rounding out the Southwest territory.
The AZ Taco Festival Web Site is Terrible. It's dark ink on a black background & you cant read it! Who ever the idiots are that started putting dark ink on black backgrounds should be shot!
Anyway, as I get more info I'll pass it along. Start working on your Taco Recipes and enter the contests!

      Hope it doesn't become a taco version of the chili championship world, i.e. anally strict rules about what goes in and what stays out.

        Based on the poor web site and what they've done so far, it's evident they're flying by the seat of their pants. They do have catagories and some rules, but nothing too restrictive so far. Mostly stuff related to Health Dept codes for events like this, etc.

          Sounds like a great idea to me!

          I hope they will have a sub category for my Taco Soup!

          And my Bay Corn Tortilla taco shells will steal tha show.
