The 'KCK Taco Trail' maps out the best places for local, authentic tacos. 

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (May 1, 2024) – Visit Kansas City Kansas is announcing the extension of the 'KCK Taco Trail', a mapped-out trail of nearly 60 local taquerias just in time for Cinco de Mayo. In March 2021, Forbes named Kansas City, Kansas the Taco Capital of the United States. The KCK Taco Trail has seen over 100 people completing the trail. With 52 weeks in a year and 60 plus Taco spots on the iconic KCK Taco Trail, there is a new spot for every Taco Tuesday. The KCK Taco Trail gives the community a flavor-filled experience of culture and history through food. 

To celebrate its extension, there are three ways to join in the celebrations:

  • Taco enthusiasts can earn double points on the Cinco (5) de Mayo weekend. During this weekend, they will find a Bonus Check-In option when they log on. 
  • We are introducing a brand new Mascot for the KCK Trail on Cinco De Mayo. Stay tuned to our social channels if you want to help us name the new mascot. 
  • You can win a pair of GA tickets to Tacos & Tequila on June 1 at Legends Field by entering the Instagram Giveaway currently running here
  • ​Join the Visit KCK Team for a Scavenger Hunt across the Taco Trail on Cinco De Mayo to win five pairs of GA tickets to Tacos & Tequila on June 1 at Legends Field. 

The trail, which first debuted in October of 2020, highlights over 60 taquerias in Kansas City, KS, helping locals and tourists find the best places for local, authentic tacos with chances to win prizes along the way.
