Back in January, I heard of an incredible event being planned here in Tampa. Margarita Fest, featuring the Barenaked Ladies, was coming to Curtis Hixon Park in May. I was lucky enough to attend and would love to share my experience with you.
SO Many Margaritas!
Let’s start with the most important part. the Margaritas. There was no shortage of them. The tequila was flowing, and they were delicious! You could try numerous different kinds, including some magical looking frozen buckets of margaritas. I would say that the buckets looked great to share, but who am I to judge if you wanted one for yourself? Corona had a great booth with their beer and margarita combos!
Big City Events did a great job including various vendors! There were delicious food options, including Fuzzy’s Taco Shop and Mini Doughnut Factory (a Tampa staple!).
My husband sampled some different tequilas, which I thought was a nice way to break up the sugar intake from all the margaritas.
The majority of the park was reserved for the concert stage and viewing area. It has a true festival feel, and I loved seeing all of the people who brought their own blankets and chairs. It was a great crowd, and you could tell that everyone was there for a good time.
Big City Events
While you missed the 2017 Margarita Fest, Big City Events has some amazing events scheduled for you! Their Rum Fest featuring Shaggy and the Baha Men will be over Labor Day weekend and tickets are available now.
Of course, you can also plan to join us for next year’s Margarita Fest – I know I will return!
