Organizers said concerns about the health and safety of festival participants and guests amid rising presumptive-positive cases of coronavirus prompted the decision.

Top Taco has tentatively reserved a new festival date at the Woldenberg Park location. Details about the new date will be posted on the festival’s website and Facebook page at a later time.

“It is our hope that things will return to normal, and we will put on another amazing event as soon as possible,” organizers said in a release.

All tickets will be honored for the new date. Patrons that have wristbands issued by will be allowed to use those as well.

“We want to recognize the efforts of the PLEASE Foundation for working with us to raise money for at-risk teens to further their educations and become leaders in our community. We also want to thank this year’s competing restaurants who are all looking forward to Top Taco 2020. We hope that our fans will support these local businesses during this trying time,” the release said.

Nearly 40 restaurants were scheduled to participate at Top Taco including Barracuda, Casa Borrega, Los Jefes, Johnny Sanchez, among others. During the festival, local chefs and mixologists compete for top honors in several categories judged by local celebrities and festival-goers.
