Do you love tacos? If yes, then you will love Tacotopia, an aesthetically excellent taco experience in South Austin for a limited time.
Kicking off their North American tour in Austin, Tacotopia is a pop-up art experience that is chock full of colorful installations that are bound to brighten up your Instagram.
Created by West 54 Media Group (the same group that brought us The Art of Ice Cream exhibit) and sponsored by Cholula Hot Sauce, Tacotopia welcomes people of all ages to take part in their taco wonderland.
Their goal with Tacotopia is to “deliver true Instagrammable goals” and I must say they do just that.
What made the experience memorable for me was how interactive the exhibit is.
As you walk in you are greeted with a ring toss game with Jarritos bottles as hooks. Feel free to drink one while you’re at it!
There is also an oversized checkers board where the pieces are giant Cholula Hot Sauce bottles. I recommend going with a friend so that you have a partner to player checkers with and someone to join you on the fork inspired teeter-totter.
Other installations include a lime swing, a Chihuahua bobble head wall and a guacamole foam pit! They offer over 20 installations which are full of vibrant colors and clever taco word play.
Of course, it’s not a true taco experience without a taco food truck! There is one located outside the building to the right which serves excellent street-style tacos.
After their stint in Austin Tacotopia will be traveling to some of America’s largest cities including Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and Miami.
Tacotopia is open Thursday through Tuesday from 11 a.m.- 9 p.m. (they’re closed on Wednesdays) at 3208 South Congress Ave. and will be leaving the Austin area on March 31. Swing by while you still can and don’t forget to book online before you arrive!
