Coinciding with Dia de los muertos (day of the dead), a celebration of the awakened spirits of passed loved-ones, the International Tequila Festival is bringing a whole 3 days of fiery Mexican flavour to Capetonians. While some aspects of the festival will pay homage to classic Mexican culture, the ITF is all about a high-energy, highly commercialised, fun-filled tequila-infused experience. Get your drinking caps on!


The festival boasts 30 different styles and brands of agave-derived liquor, the best live music sets, and an atmosphere in which to (responsibly) sample the spirits on offer. Come prepared for an action-packed event as no Mexican festival is complete without mechanical bull rides, cook-offs, and chilli-eating competitions! Integrated into the fun are also multiple engrossing educational experiences - masterclasses on mixing the perfect tequila cocktail, live demonstration of the manufacturing processes, and food and spirit pairings. 

Whether you're a tequila connoisseur or simply want a vibey atmosphere in which to day drink (you're excused, it's over the weekend and basically at the end of the year), The International Tequila Festival is the place to be!
