Who We Are
We're Smiley Pete Publishing. We brought you Crave food + music festival, Bluegrass BBQ FEST, Lexington Burger Week and Lexington Pizza Week. Now... Crave Taco Week!
We heard the taco chants loud and clear. Crave Taco Week is April 18-24, 2022. Join us as we celebrate taco culture in Lexington. We are pleased to partner with Casa de la Cultura Ky for Crave Taco Week. This nonprofit promotes cultural activities in Central Kentucky among youth and the youthful.
