Last year, I was a little skeptical after what was promising to be an awesome first Taco Fest. The long lines, the miscommunication between vendor and festival goer were something's not to be desired. But trial and error are a part of the growing process and I'm excited to say that Michigan's 2nd Annual Taco Fest is returning for 2020 from August 20th until the 23rd in Canterbury Village in Lake Orion, MI. Here's all the info provided thus far on their event page:
