Wild & Crazy Taco Night

Feeling hungry? Why don’t we taco ’bout it! Now in its 25th year, Wild & Crazy Taco Night™ has become one of the most popular events in Orange County! Get ready for a fun and festive evening where 25 of Orange County’s finest chefs and restaurants each prepare an unusual and unique taco. The chefs’ creativity is endless and the food leaves guests talking for the rest of the year!

See your favorite OC chefs at their most creative as they compete to come up with the most unusual tacos you’ll see all year, all for a great cause. In 2017, the top-rated taco as chosen by attendees was El Heroé Taco with crispy melted cheese, filet mignon, Maine lobster, avocado, Heroé sauce, jalapeño pico, on a maíz azul tortilla created by newcomer Puesto’s Chef Katy Smith. Other delectable options included a California hot chicken taco from Haven Gastropub’s Chef Greg Daniels, a slow-braised beef tongue and beef cheek taco from from Pueblo’s Chef John Beber, and a pineapple pork vindaloo taco from ADYA’s Chef Shachi Mehra. All tacos are conceived exclusively for this event and can’t be found anywhere else! Tickets include all-you-can-eat tacos and beverages, including DesMaDre Tequila margaritas and beer from local favorite Barley Forge Brewing Co.

Back by popular demand is the pre-event VIP Party! Participating guests will enjoy early admission and have the opportunity to meet all of the chefs and sample their tacos before the general event begins. The VIP Party has sold out every year.

Proceeds from the event benefit the SOS Food Pantry, which provides critical food security to low-income and homeless Orange County residents. Volunteer and staff drivers collect food from grocery stores, restaurants, bakeries and caterers throughout Orange County and deliver it to SOS. Five days a week, SOS distributes an average of 235 bags of groceries a day to individuals and families in need.
