Trade in Sound Bites for Tasty Bites During Port A Live Music Fest 2021

Port A Live Music Fest is approaching quickly! There's only a bit more time before the festival begins to get your tickets for the kickoff Landshark concert and gear up for a weekend full of live music. Between all the excitement, there’s one more part of the weekend you should know about—the Taco & Margarita Trail

The music-themed creations on the Taco & Margarita Trail are the perfect concert complement. For just $7, you will receive one street taco and a sample-sized margarita from any stop on the trail, each of which has crafted a combo specifically for the weekend of the festival. Make several stops on the trail to keep your energy up, your mood boosted, and your dance moves groovy!
