Are you loco for fideo loco? The fourth annual Fideo Loco Festival is excited to bring this year’s event to the South Side on Nov. 6 from noon-4 p.m. at Farwest San Antonio at 2502 Pleasanton Road.

Come out to the event to try fideo loco dishes from locals and restaurants across the city and vote for your favorite.

Tickets are on sale now, and general admission is $15 online and $20 at the door.

General admission tickets include entrance into the event at noon, unlimited fideo samples, a token to vote for your favorite for people’s choice (first 100 tickets sold online only), and access to local market vendors, music and a bar all day.

Tickets can be purchased online or on the day of the event. The online ticket or paper ticket should be available upon entrance.

Kids 12 and under can get in for free, but no sampling will be included.

To keep the costs low, all ticket sales are final, and this event is rain or shine.

Parking will be available for first-come, first-served. We always suggest using Uber, Lyft or city transportation if you plan on enjoying alcoholic beverages.

Anyone who wishes to apply for a cook-off team can apply here, and anyone looking for market vendor space can apply here.
