Breckenridge International Festival of Arts kicks off this Friday, August 9, and runs through August 18. This must-attend festival, happening across downtown, is a celebration of adventure, play and creativity featuring everything from in-river music performances to art displays and aerial performances. While you're in Breckenridge, consider fueling up on Mexican flavors from one of the restaurants below.

Sancho Tacos & Tequilas

500 S. Main Street, Breckenridge

Sancho Tacos & Tequilas features street-style tacos, house-made salsas and truly delicious hand-crafted cocktails. More than 25 tequilas and mezcals are available at the full-service bar. I personally love the cashew salsa (it has a tangy, savory flavor) and the sweet-potato tacos (served with chile aioli and cucumber pico de gallo, among other ingredients). Other taco favorites include the Al Pastor, Barbacoa and Chicken Tinga. Build-your-own mimosas are available during brunch.

Fiesta Jalisco

224 S. Main Street, Breckenridge

Fiesta Jalisco is a favorite among locals and visitors alike. Its expansive menu has all the favorites. Try the enchiladas de mole (made with two corn tortillas filled with shredded chicken breast, along with a sweet/spicy peanut butter-based sauce). I also like the flan and deep-fried ice cream.

Other nearby locations include Silverthorne and Avon.

Mi Casa Mexican Restaurant & Cantina

600 S. Park Avenue, Breckenridge

Mi Casa Mexican Restaurant & Cantina is a crowd favorite that's been around since 1981. It offers a sunny deck during the summer. Dig into its guacamole (make with onions, lime and fresh tomatoes) while sipping on a Happy Hour drink daily from 3 to 6 p.m. Shrimp nachos are worth a try, too!
