The Village of Baytowne Wharf

9th Annual T&T Fest

We are excited to be back at The Village of Baytowne Wharf in the beautiful Sandestin Resort for Our 9th Annual Tequila & Taco Fest held on May 6th through May 8th, 2022. This premier event has grown significantly since being founded in 2014, by event founder, Carlos Shaffran. Carlos states, “Guests from all over the Southeast come to celebrate this unique event on the Emerald Coast.”

Our location is at Baytowne, located along the shores of the Choctawhatchee Bay in Northwest Florida. The Village of Baytowne Wharf features an array of boutiques, eateries, galleries, nightlife and family fun-zones, with other outdoor activities for the whole family. This is truly a very unique location having one of the finest hotels in the area steps away from the festival. Sandestin offers a variety of accommodation options, each with a unique style, personality, and range of amenities. Make a weekend out of it with special rates for all festival attendees. We are looking forward to a Taco filled day, and looking forward to seeing all of you there!

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Fisher House Foundation, Sandestin Foundation for Kids, and Boys & Girls Club.  This is a rain or shine event and no refunds will be given.

Tacos Only $35 ~ Military $55 ~ General Admission $70 ~ VIP $150

Tequila & Taco Fest initially planned to be an in-restaurant event quickly grew to become the second largest festival event on the Destin Harbor next to the Destin Seafood Festival. T&T Fest founder Carlos Shaffran states "People come from all over the south" to celebrate the finest Tequila and Taco pairings along the coast. It is a really great place to experience some off-the-wall tacos you may have never considered. This year's event has been moved to a new venue located in Miramar Beach, FL, "The Village of Baytowne Wharf", more vendors, more contests, open area and free parking!  So mark your calendar May 6th for the Black Sheep Tequila Pre-Party at the Marina Bar Beach, May 7th for Tequila & Taco Fest, and May 8th for the Bye Bye Brunch that is being held at the Beach House in Sandestin.
