Kern Margarita Championship 2020
Join Us Online!
This year the championship is going digital
and we're celebrating until August 22, 2020!
Despite our best hopes, it turns out that this COVID-19 thing is real and we had to adapt.
Due to the pandemic, and state/local regulations, we had cancel our plans of providing world-class Margaritas to 500 people in a single room. We know that this is disappointing, believe us, we know. But we already have plans to bring the event back to the Downtown Bakersfield Marriott in 2021.
So now what‽
We want to celebrate local margaritas and the people who make them, so we're still going to decide who's got the best drink in town! Use the menu item above to cast your vote for who you think has the best margarita in Kern County! We'll announce the winners on August 22nd.
Also, in honor of our friend Josh Farler, we have begun our #DrinksForJoshChallenge on our social media platforms. We invite everyone to join in on the fun by uploading a selfie while enjoying YOUR favorite margarita using the hashtag #drinksforjoshchallenge. You can learn more about Josh and the Josh Farler Foundation, the founders of the event, at joshfarler.org.
And the winners is:
