HomeState’s 2nd Annual Margarita Showdown
happening via livestream
Sat, Sept 5th at 2pm

We are excited to present our 2nd Annual Margarita Showdown! This year, we have set everything up for you to enjoy from the comfort of your own home 💚

The Showdown brings margs, music and people together to raise money for community organizations with some of our city’s most beloved Margarita Makers taking part in a lighthearted competition to determine who makes the BEST margarita in Los Angeles. The drinks will be paired with musical sets by Band Taco alumni including Chicano Batman, Spoon and Questlove. All proceeds from the Showdown benefit our partners, No Us Without You! and Watts Empowerment Center. Our friends at ChowNow are matching every dollar raised up to $10,000.

This year, we’ll be sharing the event live on while you sit back, relax and drink your flight of margs curated from around the city. This year’s lineup includes:

Cristela Alonzo

El Carmen 
El Compadre 
El Condor 
Gold Line 
Gracias Madre  
Las Perlas 

Petty Cash 

Chicano Batman
Local Natives

Angela Muñoz
Fred Armisen
& more!

The Showdown livestream is FREE and OPEN TO ALL at For the margs, we are offering Showdown Margarita Packages featuring the festival’s marg competitors. Packages are $50 each, available for pre-order and include:
