When and Where is It

This year, the Tampa Riverfest will be held on May 3rd from 4 pm to 10 pm and May 4th from 10 am to 10 pm. It’s going to be in downtown Tampa, held all along the famous Riverwalk. Over the course of the two days, there will be many different events held, including a Wiener Dog Derby, a Taco Festival, and more. No matter what you choose, you’ll have a lot of fun. And the best part is, the event has entirely free admission.


What to Do

As mentioned, the 2019 Tampa Riverfest is packed full of different events catering to people of all ages. On Friday the 3rd, you can enjoy live music, taste samplings from various restaurants, beer trucks and more. On Saturday the 4th, you’ll be able to enjoy a variety of events, from the Hot Air Balloon Glow to the Gasparilla Stand Up Paddleboard Invasion, and much more. Of course, there will also be live music, too! The full schedule seems very taxing, indeed.


Additionally, you can even purchase a VIP ticket for access to unlimited beer, soda, and water, as well as front row access to the concerts and a sampling wristband for the Taste of Riverwalk event on the 3rd. Be sure, while you’re there, to check out the surrounding museums, bars, and restaurants for RiverFest specials that weekend only!

Whether you’re looking for a more relaxed date, like a stroll through Riverwalk, or something a little more lively, like the concerts, you’ll be in for a treat at the Tampa Riverfest.
