Get ready for lots of tacos in downtown Royal Oak over Fourth of July weekend. A new festival, called Royal Oak Taco Fest, will take place from Friday, July 1 through Monday, July 4. The event will take place around South Main Street/CN Railroad, West Fifth, Sixth and Seventh streets and South Washington Avenue.

The event will offer tacos, tequila, music, mariachis and more over four days, boasting more than 35 taquerias, taco trucks and other food spots. Attendees will also be asked to vote for their favorite tacos.
