Cherokee Street's 2021 Cinco de Mayo festival has been cancelled, due to pandemic restrictions. While vaccinations are increasing and many things are moving in the right direction, we are not there yet for an event of this style and size - which traditionally convenes tens of thousands on one day to party on Cherokee. 

But all is not lost. While we will not be partying in the street,there are still a number of ways we can celebrate Cinco safely and most importantly support our street's small businesses that rely on the annual festival. 

Check out one of the delicious ideas we're cooking up below & stay tuned for more to come!

Throughout the month of May, taco lovers from around the region are invited to take a stroll down the Taco Walk-o-Fame, try 8 different featured tacos from taquerias and restaurants on Cherokee Street, and vote for their favorites via our online bracket.

The masterminds behind each of these Cherokee Street establishments have hand picked what they believe is the best taco on their menu. Last taco standing will win the prized Golden Taco Trophy.
