Because you can never have too many tacos. Downtown Fresno gets another taco/beer fest

Fresnans enjoy their food festivals.

Especially if it include tacos. For instance, the 559 Taco and Beer Fest happening at 1 p.m. Saturday at Eaton Plaza in downtown Fresno.

The event features tacos (from Taqueria Jaliscience, Bocca Taquera, Fat Gabes BBQ, Taqueria Gonzalez and Vega Bros Street Tacos), craft beer, a full bar (con tequila, obviously) and a music lineup that includes the Carlos Montano Band.

This is an inaugural event, different from the Central Valley Taco that happened at the for several years, not the Fresno Taco Fest that happened at Woodward Park and separate from the original Taco Truck Throwdown, which hosts it ninth annual event Aug. 17.

Details: 1 p.m. Saturday. Eaton Plaza, 2400 Fresno St. $6-$30. 559-570-4373,
