Milagro Tequila presents the third annual Arkansas Times Margarita Festival in the concourse at War Memorial Stadium, sponsored by Orion Federal Credit Union! Sample variations of the classic cocktail from the city's best bartenders, all made with award-winning Milagro Tequila. Vote for your favorites and we'll crown one margarita bartender team Best of the Fest!
The Arkansas Times Margarita Festival features popular local restaurants competing to determine who makes the Best Margarita. Competition will be stiff. Festivities start at 6 p.m. and run until 9 p.m. Tickets are $25 through April 30th, after which the price will go up.
Beer and wine will be available for purchase. Taco Mama, La Terraza, and the Rock Brick Oven Pizza Truck will be selling great food. Enjoy Latin Salsa Tunes & Jimmy Buffet Standards from Club 27 & Little Rock Salsa!
Each ticket grants access to the festival and includes 3 oz. margarita samples from 15 bartender teams, live music and fun! Food, beer and wine are not included in the price of the ticket.
At the door, each attendee will receive a card with 15 margarita slots. Bartenders will check off these slots as attendees sample each drink. When all 15 slots are checked off (or whenever the attendee is finished sampling), attendees will drop their sample card into a bucket at the station of their favorite margarita! Cards will be counted and the competitor with the most sample cards wins Best of the Fest!
