Jared Betts, Founder, Director & CEO of Moncton Taco Week rang the opening bell on the third annual Moncton Taco Week saying, “This is a great event to help kickoff the summer season and celebrate Moncton’s community spirit. Moncton Taco Week has always been about celebrating Moncton’s international culinary flavors through the joy and excitement of tacos.”

Moncton Taco Week has brought together 48 local restaurants and together they are inviting the Greater Moncton community to experience flavors from all over the world through tacos! Dining in or grab-to-go, taco week is about supporting local artists, chefs, and restaurants with a portion of the profits going to the United Way. Creating sustainable change, supporting local businesses, and enjoying a great meal is what's called a win-win-win.

It’s first event saw 8,000 people come together to support 17 local restaurants and enjoy locally made tacos. On its second year it saw growth with over 10,000 attendees and 29 participating restaurants. This year, Moncton Taco Week has 48 participating restaurants and has expanded to Shediac.

Jared Betts is an award-winning painter and has exhibited his paintings both nationally and internationally. While doing a 4-month artist residency in Costa Rica, later exhibited at the National Gallery of Costa Rica, Betts experienced the local flavours of South and Central American cuisine. Pulling inspiration from this experience, Moncton Taco Week was born! Let’s taco bout it! So get out there and please respect all COVID-19 rules and regulations and most importantly, have fun!
