April 21-22, 2018 sees the start of a new event tradition in Tampa: the premiere of the Tampa Bay Seafood & Music Festival at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, adjacent to the Tampa Museum of Art. Join us for a weekend celebration of food and music. Hours are both Saturday and Sunday from 11 am to 8 pm. General admission is $5 in advance, $7 at the gate. VIP Tent admission is $130 that includes an open raw bar serving shrimp, oysters and crab legs, open bar and a private lounge area with dedicated service staff. Tickets can be purchased thru EventLive.
The festival is approached like the preparation of a great meal: selecting and blending the finest ingredients. Freshly-cooked dishes are prepared onsite incorporating a variety of ingredients (seafood, meat and vegetarian) with all seafood dishes using sustainable ocean resources from Florida coastal waters. Choose from a diverse selection of alcoholic, non-alcoholic and fruit drinks, broad selection of side dishes and many a scrumptious dessert! Also enjoy a Marketplace showcasing arts and crafts along with a selection of fine products, gourmet food and specialty items.
Musical entertainment will be live on-stage performances by creative and talented musicians from the local and regional circuit. Performers on Saturday are: the Sarasota Steel Pan Band, Reverend Barry & The Funk, Twinkle & Rock Soul Radio and RJ Howson. Sunday performers are: Kettle of Fish, the Greg Billings Band, the Black Honkeys Band and Act 3.
This is a ‘cannot be missed’ event! Join us with family and friends or meet up with associates. We will lay the feast upon the table – all we need is the final and most important ingredient – YOU! Come and enjoy!
