Experience Agave: Culinaria Celebrates Tequila and More in Oct.

Print Friendly

This fall, Culinaria invites lovers of tequila to share in an all-about-agave event at Experience Agave, beginning on Thurs. Oct. 23 and running through Sunday, Oct. 26.

The agave plant is the basis of tequila.

The agave plant is revered by tequila lovers the world over.

Culinaria joins forces with agave and tequila professionals from around the country to host this weekend of tequila, mezcal and much more.

It’s a great way to celebrate agave and increase awareness through education and of course, sampling the craft of agave cocktails.

It wouldn’t be a Culinaria event, however, without incredible food, too.  This event line-up includes a dinner and other tasty offerings to accompany your tequila exploration. We will be pouring out some incredible opportunities as we Eat, Drink and Give towards all things agave.

(For updated information on ticketing and more, go to Culinaria’s website here.) Also see Facebook, at;  Twitter, @culinariasa;  and Instagram: @culinariasa.
