You’re going to want to read this with a side of lime + salt because the Chattanooga Margarita Festival will take over the First Horizon Pavilion on Saturday, Aug. 5.

From 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., folks can sip their way through a sample passport, trying 12 mini margs while enjoying bites from local spots + music spun by a DJ. Bonus: The night features a friendly competition among the vendors.

Whether it’s salted, shaken, stirred, or frozen, each spot will serve its best take on the classic drink using Don Julio Tequila. Attendees will vote on their favorite — crowning one participant with the title of “Best Margarita.”
