// What are Taco Tickets? Why do you use them?

Taco tickets are considered your taco-currency. Taco tickets are what you will give a vendor in trade for one of their delicious tacos. Vendors will be collecting all of the tickets they receive throughout the event, which in return are counted to see who sold the most tacos, as well as how many total tacos will have been consumed! Local vendors get money back from each ticket that they collect to help them cover their taco costs and make some money at the event.

// Can I buy more Taco Tickets at the event if I need any or run out of what is included in my ticket package?

Additional Taco Tickets can be purchased at the event for $2 per ticket.

About Swarmm Events:

Swarmm Events has been bringing new and exciting events to Milwaukee since 2013!

Swarmm’s most well-known event, The Shamrock Shuffle, is undoubtedly Milwaukee’s Largest St. Patrick’s Celebration. During the Shuffle’s 10th Year this past March, the event safely brought together over 11,000 attendees from 29 different states to celebrate in 5 areas in Milwaukee. The 400 person Jig Jog 4K run also happens on this same day. Swarmm had its 5th Annual Milwaukee Taco Fest at State Fair park selling out to 2,000 attendees and then sold out Milwaukee WingFest in September at State Fair Park with 1,500 attendees. Every December, Swarmm Events organizes the 12 Bars of Christmas, a “drink-for-a-good-cause” event benefiting Hunger Task Force, Inc. which had over 3,000 attendees this past year In Milwaukee and Madison. Swarmm also is also the organizer of the Milwaukee Oktoberfest; a 3-day festival full of live German music, vendors, beer, and food. Milwaukee Oktoberfest celebrated its 9th year as the first event to be held on the Plaza outside of the Fiserv Forum. Lastly, Swarmm Events throws one of the best New Year’s Eve parties in the city, Brew Years Eve at the Milwaukee Athletic Club, which sells out each and every year. Swarmm Events has also created the Cream Puff 5k and the Young Milwaukee Holiday Gala events.

The goal of Swarmm Events is to continue to expand on events in the Milwaukee market and help create more cultural events for young professionals, families, and tourists to attend.

Swarmm Events owner Michael Sampson has raised over $128,300 for local charities since 2010, and continues to make charity and giving back to the community one of Swarmm’s main goals as a company.
