Tacotopia kicks off its North America Tour in the undisputed capital of tacos; Austin, TX during South by Southwest 2019.
Did someone say Tacos? March 1st, Tacotopia will be making its entrance into Austin, Texas with one of a kind, three-dimensional, and immersive art exhibit dedicated to everyone's favorite past time, TACOS!
Tacotopia's limited 4-week engagement will open March 1 and run through March 31, 2019, overlapping SXSW 2019. The imaginative experience is fun for all ages, and for all the non-taco lovers out there, if that exists, there are plenty of swoon worthy photo opportunities throughout the exhibit that aren't tacotastic.
The inspiration behind Tacotopia began with the Goddess of Tacos created by Jose Ortez, the Creative Director at the company behind Tacotopia. The Goddess of Tacos is an amalgamation of the Zapotec Goddess of Life and Ushnishavijaya the Buddha Goddess of a Long Life.
"Taco Tuesdays are sacrosanct in our office and this weekly ritual generally evolves into a creative meeting, Tacotopia was just the natural evolution," says Jose Ortez. "We're a Taco loving bunch of creatives!"
The interactive experience features more than twenty unique environments with larger-than-life installations ranging from the Goddess of Tacos to an oversized bowl of foam Pico De Gallo in the Pico Pit, an immersive Senorita Needs a Margarita lime swing, a taco teeter totter, the Piñatapoloza, and a staircase leading to Churro Heaven.
Guests can choose their arrival time and will have approximately 60 minutes to explore and play in the taco wonderland full of sharable moments. A limited number of tickets will be available each day. Groups over 25 are welcome, however are encouraged to contact the office directly to reserve tickets.
While the space is already booked for numerous events during SXSW, there are dates still available for private events or buy-outs. Interested parties should contact Alex Machuca at firstname.lastname@example.org.
