Avenue Taco Week was originally suggested by local resident Richard Carradine, and came to fruition through the efforts of the Westside Community Development Corporation, the city of Ventura and the Westside Community Council. It’s an excellent reason to come out to this vibrant and one-of-a-kind community — but there’s so much more here than tacos! Diners can stroll the neighborhood for a self-guided Avenue Mural Tour, taking in more than 20 works of public art. On Saturday evening, vintage and souped-up cars will gather for Cruise Night, which starts at 5 p.m. at Kellogg Park. In between courses, be sure to check out the local shops and art galleries.
No matter what day you come, or how you choose to enjoy it, Avenue Taco Week offers community-based, family-friendly food and fun at its finest.
