The Joliet City Center Partnership will be holding the first-ever Salsa Fest on Friday, June 9th from 5:30 PM to 10 PM at the Chicago Street parking lot at Chicago Street and Van Buren Street in downtown Joliet. The Salsa Fest will be free to attend on Friday evening.

The purpose of Salsa Fest is to promote nine different Mexican restaurants that are within five minutes of each other in the downtown area that Heritage Corridor Destinations has designated as the Joliet Taco Trail. (I did not have anything to do with the name of the trail. The name was created by Heritage Corridor Destinations.)

The nine restaurants in the trail are Puerto Escondido, El Primo, Sunshine Mexican Cafe, The Blue Taco, Vela's, Supermercado Joliet, Taquerias Atotonilco, Taqueria Los Comales, and La Villa. If you go to any of these restaurants that serve authentic dishes, then you will never want to go to Taco Bell ever again because the Mexican cuisine is that good.

Festivities at the Salsa Fest will kick off at 5:30 PM with a live DJ playing music. Next, a salsa dancing instructor will be showing everyone how to do the salsa at 7 PM. Learning salsa will turn you from a wallflower into a dancing machine. From 8 to 10 PM, the Latin Satin Soul Band will perform on stage. Please make sure that you bring a lawn chair or you will more than likely not have a seat.

Along with salsa dancing, there will also be salsa tastings and a margarita truck that you will be able to partake in so that you will be extra saucy all night long. Eight different food trucks will also be on site so that the food will soak up all of that tequila from the margarita.
