Agave Week Returns

5 Days of Amazing Events at the Ace Hotel and Woldenberg Park New Orleans

March 10th – 14th, 2019

In 2018, Top Taco produced the first ever Agave Week in New Orleans. With 13 events, 75 spirits, and hundreds of industry professionals learning, tasting and enjoying the wonders of the agave plant.

Agave Week at the Ace Hotel

Agave Week was featured in the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, Southern Living Magazine,, and more.  In 2019, Agave Week moves to the Ace Hotel and excitement is growing for bigger and better events to dazzle the city of New Orleans and entertain agave-loving visitors. 

Industry panel discussions, fascinating seminars, tequila and mezcal tastings, a lucha libre, and the Top Tequila & Mezcal Competition are just some of the exciting events scheduled for Agave Week 2019. 

And it’s all for a great cause!

Proceeds from Top Taco and Agave Week benefit Foster Nola, a Louisiana 501c-3 dedicated to helping foster kids that are in, or have recently aged out of state foster care.


Our goal is to educate service industry professionals, expand the local tequila scene throughout the city, and create a world-class international event.
