Mexican culinary celebration fills Victoria Public Market

Taco, Tequila and Margarita Fiesta takes over the Victoria Public Market the evening of Nov. 16

A taste of Mexico comes to the Victoria Public Market on Nov. 16, as the Taco, Tequila and Margarita Fiesta brings food, fun and musical entertainment that’ll make it feel like a Puerto Vallarta Saturday night.

Headlining the music side of things is Mariachi Los Dorados from Vancouver, plus Victoria’s Fiesta Latina Folklore Dancers and DJ Boitano will keep the festivities lively.
