Due to the severe flooding to the Omaha and Council Bluffs area, including the majority of River’s Edge Park, the decision has been made to cancel River’s Edge Taco Fest for 2019.

We are extremely disappointed and spent the better part of the last three weeks trying to find a solution including an alternative site or using a smaller portion of River’s Edge Park. Our goal of bringing an tremendous experience for Taco Fest fans would not be the same and that is our number-one goal. We hope everyone understands.

100% of ticket sales and service fees will be refunded to customers that have already purchased tickets. Restaurants, Sponsors, Chihuahua participants, and Vendors will also receive a 100% refund.

We look forward to keeping Taco Fest part of the Community and hope everyone understands.


The River’s Edge Taco Fest is a food, music, and cultural celebration of all that makes Omaha & Council Bluffs great!

The festival will take place on Saturday, August 3, 2019 at Tom Hanafan’s River’s Edge Park at 4250 River’s Edge Parkway, Council Bluffs, IA 51501.

Fifteen+ of the area’s best taco-centric restaurants will offer a wide range of mouth watering taco creations.

The day will be packed with incredible national and local musical performances headlined by Everclear!

Also playing the Main Stage will be June’s Got the Cash, Oye Como Va, M80s, and Emmett Bower Band!

In between the musical performances, make your way to the other end of the festival to catch live Lucha Libre wrestling matches!

The metro area’s fastest Chihuahuas will be strutting their stuff with a Beauty Pageant and a Chihuahua Race.

The area’s best bean bag hurlers will be competing in an all-day Cornhole Tournament to win cash prizes.

There is something for everyone at the River’s Edge Taco Fest and we hope to see you there!

Mark your calendars now to attend the newest Festival on the Riverfront!
