Chattanooga Margarita Festival Set For Aug. 10

  • Wednesday, June 12, 2024

Chattanooga Margarita Festival is bringing together the Scenic City’s most loved bars and restaurants to compete for the title of Best Margarita in town on Aug. 10. 

Twenty restaurants and bars will go head-to-head with tastings of their best margaritas. Attendees will sample and vote on their favorite. At the end of the night, one restaurant will be crowned “Best Margarita” and earn a trophy and bragging rights. Last year’s margarita champion was Mayan Kitchen. 

Produced with community engagement in mind, Chattanooga Margarita Festival brings together local restaurants, residents, and businesses in an interactive, fun environment. Tickets purchasers will enjoy 10 fun-sized margaritas, a live DJ, onsite activities, photo ops, and more. Local eats will be available for purchase. Full size Don Julio cocktails and Corona will be available for purchase at the bar. The festival benefits the Chattanooga Market.

Chattanooga Margarita Festival will be held at the First Horizon Pavilion, 1826 Reggie White Blvd. Margarita Festival is open to ticket purchasers from 6-9 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 10.

New this year, VIP ticket purchasers will receive all the benefits of GA, plus 30 minutes early entry, a complimentary welcome beverage, and access to a reserved VIP area with separate entry line.

This is a 21+ only event. Attendees must show a valid ID and tickets upon entry.
