Team Springdale to launch taco tour this spring


Springdale Taco Tour

Jonathan and Amber Perrodin of the grass-roots social media movement Team Springdale came up with the idea for the taco tour, modeled loosely after the Fayetteville Ale Trail, and will be bringing it to life this spring.

“The taquerias in Springdale are a huge aspect of the city that are unique for this region,” Jonathan told us. “We just thought it would be a fun way to build some bridges and connect some cultures that might not be regularly interacting.”

Team Springdale pitched the idea for the tour to the Springdale A&P Commission who recently agreed to give the group $1,000 in funding to help make it a reality.

The Perrodins, along with locals Bryan Gott, Steven Jones, and Olivia Trimble, have been working on compiling a list of taquerias along with an online guide that will help non-Spanish speakers understand the menus for the local establishments.

Locals and visitors to the area can then reference a website set to launch this spring to discover the mom-and-pop style taquerias, and visit them at their own pace.

The group will be printing up some hand-drawn maps of the available taco shops in town, but will mainly be focusing their promotional efforts online.
