Imagine not one, but two days of margaritas, live entertainment, and more. If that sounds like a good time to you, then the Tampa Bay Margarita Festival is perfect for you. And, of course, bring your significant other along for the event so that you can both enjoy the festival to its fullest extent! If you’re looking to make a date out of this festival, here’s everything you need to know to make it great.
What It Is
If you couldn’t tell from the name of the event, this is a festival dedicated to having a good time celebrating margaritas and their great taste along with lots of other fun. The festival will run on two days, Saturday, May 26th and Sunday, May 27th. Each day will feature a variety of activities and, naturally, margaritas. You’ll be able to buy tickets for Saturday, Sunday, or for both days. Ticket prices vary based on how early you buy them, and what experience you’re looking for. You’ll be able to choose tickets from the least costly, general admission, to the most expensive, the VVIP experience. No matter what you’re looking for, you’ll find something right for you!
The Margaritas and Food
Here’s what you’re really looking for! At the Tampa Bay Margarita Fest, you’ll be able to find and choose from over 60 different margaritas of all kinds. These margaritas will be at 13 separate Margarita Bars and will feature frozen margaritas, as well! You can find a full list of the margaritas and Margaritas Bars here to plan your date. Margarita will average about $6 to $7 each with the occasional more expensive drink. This is the Margarita Festival, so make sure to take advantage and pick some awesome margaritas to try!
Additionally, there will be a tequila tasting with over 45 different participating brands and many food vendors at the festival, so you’ll be sure to be satisfied and full of both great food and great drinks all day long.
With so many food and drink options available, it seems like the festival can’t get any better. But, it can! The 2018 Tampa Bay Margarita Festival will also feature live entertainment with concerts headlined by the Wallflowers on Saturday, Everclear on Sunday, and supported by the Plain White T’s, Fastball and more than ten other bands. The concerts will take place at night on the stage set up at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park. With everything the Margarita Festival has to offer, it just keeps getting better and better, making it perfect for your next date.
The Margarita Run
If you’re thinking the Margarita Festival seems like a great date for you and your significant other, you’re definitely right. You’ve got food, drinks, entertainment, and now, a run! The Margarita Run will take place before the Margarita Festival. And the best part is, your registration for the run will include general admission into the Margarita Festival, a free Zignum Mezcal Margarita drink during the festival, a festival shirt, and a festival bottle opener. The run is about 2.5 miles long, making it the perfect warm up for the day full of fun ahead of you at the festival.
If you’re looking for a day date that will offer you variety as well as good drinks, food and much more, there’s no better option than taking that date straight to the Tampa Bay Margarita Festival. It won’t be a day or night to forget!
