Attention taco lovers: There’s a festival just for you coming up next month.

Billsburg Brewery will host the Williamsburg Taco Fest from 1-6 p.m. May 5, which is also Cinco de Mayo, Billsburg wrote in a news release.

Tickets are $6.50 each and all proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Alzheimer’s Association, according to the news release.

Billsburg has partnered with several local food trucks, which will serve their “best” tacos for $5 each. A dollar from each taco sale will also go to the Alzheimer’s Association.

Participating food trucks include Stuft, Foodatude, The Hungry Pug and Two Drummers Smokehouse.

Electric Circus Taco Bar from the Precarious Beer Project team — part of the new beer hall opening soon in downtown Williamsburg — will also be there.

To pair with the tacos, Billsburg will be serving its own “cerveza,” as well as other craft brews.

One dollar from each beer sale will also go to the Alzheimer’s Association.

The event will feature DJ music from Time Passages Mobile DJ Service, then live music from Williamsburg-based Hangar 09.
