Columbus Taco Week Returns This Summer

Summer is the best season for so many reasons, including the fact that it brings us Columbus Taco Week.

This week-long event will take place June 6-11 and I’m already dreaming about it. During Taco Week, participating restaurants will offer their own unique $2 taco specials for a full week, giving taco lovers the perfect opportunity to indulge.

Originally created to support local businesses and to aid restaurants recovering from the Covid-19 pandemic, Columbus Taco Week has continued to live up to this mission. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Ohio Restaurant Employee Relief Fund, an emergency fund for Columbus’ personnel in the foodservice industry who have been affected by the pandemic.

“We have been working with and helping local taco trucks with the Columbus Taco Fest® since 2018 and we were exploring ways to help local restaurants as well,” said Event Organizers Hugo Albornoz and Sydney Kondas. “When the Covid-19 pandemic hit and affected many businesses, we knew we had to do something.”

There will be an Instagram photo contest during the event awarding daily winners with gift cards from participating restaurants. Followers can enter their Taco Week photos for a chance to win by using the hashtag #ColumbusTacoWeek. So do it for the ‘gram and for the chance to win yummy tacos.

“We are thrilled to bring the second year of Columbus Taco Week. If we know anything, it’s that Columbus loves tacos, and Columbus Taco Week is our way of featuring and celebrating some of the best taco restaurants around town while continuing to help the community, local businesses, and non-profit organizations,” the organizers shared.

A list of participants, a map with restaurant locations, menus, and more information will be available soon at
