To make a purchase, simply tap your wristband on the RFID reader at any point of sale location to open a transaction. Then place your order. To confirm and close the transaction, you will be required to use the same wristband to tap a second time. The order amount will automatically be deducted from your account. No cash handling required!
Arriving at the festival
Upon arrival at the festival, your wristband must be securely attached to your wrist. It cannot be loose and it cannot be transferred for use by another person. When you arrive at Candler Park, you will head to the “Wristband Activation’ tent to activate your wristband. The ‘Wristband Activation” tent is located at the main entrance to the park, located at 585 Candler Park Dr NE, Atlanta, GA 30307.
When do I put my wristband on?
Easy tiger! Do NOT put your wristband on until the DAY OF the event. It has a self-locking clasp that CAN NOT be loosened once on your wrist. As tempting as it may be, DO NOT PUT IT ON YET J Once on, it cannot be removed and wristbands cannot be replaced.
The festival is a “cashless” festival. You will use your wristband (pre-loaded with ‘POINTS’) to pay for your food and beverages.
What are “Taco Points?”
When you purchase your taco package, you will receive a wristband pre-loaded with Taco Points. “Taco Points” are accepted by all food vendors. 1 Taco Point = $1.00
How many points will each item cost?
Each food vendor will offer tacos at 2 and 3 points each but will have other menu items that are available for as much as 10 points. You can purchase beverages using points as well.
Can I add more “Points” to my wristbands?
You can purchase additional points at any of the top up stations inside the festival. Top up stations accept cash, credit and debit cards. All sales are final. There are no refunds for unused points.
All ‘points’ sales are final. There are no refunds for unused points. You can top up your wristbands with as few as five points. Any unused points once the festival ends will have no value.
Lost or Damaged Wristbands
Please treat your wristband like cash. If lost or damaged there will be a fee of $5.00 to replace the wristband. Do not put the wristband on too tightly as if we have to cut it off, there will be a fee of $5.00 to replace the wristband.
Why are there fees when I purchase tickets?
The Atlanta Taco Festival is using Radio Frequency Identification technology and each person will be mailed a wristband pre-loaded with 10 -20 “Taco Points” that will be used for entry, to pay for tacos, desserts, other menu items and to attend a Lucha Libre Wrestling Match at the festival, entertainment, security from APD and a donation will be made to the CHRIS Kids Foundation. This wristband can be registered allowing patrons to “re- fill” their “Taco Points” at re- filling stations as well.
