At SXSW 2019, Austin’s own Torchy’s Tacos fastened hundreds of their flavorful creations to actual parachutes — created by an interesting Australian company called Jafflechutes — and then dropped them down onto the streets of Austin as thousands of SXSW revelers looked on.
You can see video of it all going down (pun intended) in THIS POST from 2019.
Austin.com is and always has been a site that celebrates and promotes the unique people and places of Austin, TX and surrounding cities. Though many businesses, locations, and events are closed at this time, we continue to highlight those things so that you can plan to experience them in the future.
Well, the taco maker supreme is back with another big surprise at SXSW 2020! We don’t know what exactly is going to happen, but we know we need to be at the Congress Avenue Bridge on Friday, March 20 and Saturday, March 21 from 3 to 5 p.m. The only thing they’ve told us is, “It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s… wait, is that Torchy?”
Sounds like an event you don’t want to miss!
