"We are excited to partner with Highmark Stadium to hold a second and much-improved Pittsburgh Taco Festival," organizer Craig McCloud says in a release.
"We want to make this festival the best event possible for the people of Pittsburgh. We've listened closely to the feedback from our first event, and have built a strong team to ensure a great experience for everyone," McCloud says.
Two sessions are planned, from 12 to 3 p.m. and from 4 to 7 p.m.
VIP ticket holders will gain entry 30 minutes early and enjoy a free buffet, free tequila sampling, an indoor lounge, access to VIP bars and rest rooms, free parking and a free festival T-shirt.
