Fresno Keeps on Truckin’

The EPIC Taco Truck Throwdown just keeps getting bigger and better.

The Throwdown turns TEN this year in Fresno, a testament to the value fans see in this iconic promotion.

In Fresno the team even annually changes its name to the the Fresno Tacos! This epic promotion even has its own website, including a downloadable Doctors note so you can get out of work and make it to the game (from Dr. Al Pastor).


We love these pencil-them-in successes that have been built over time, like Pink the Rink in Kalamazoo, White Outs in Winnipeg and the Thanksgiving Game in Waterloo.
