Fiesta Day commemorates the history of Ybor and highlights the heritages that first immigrated to the “Cigar Capital of the World”. A time that was originally a day of rest for the factory workers has turned into a street festival that brings together Cuban, German, Italian, Spanish, and Jewish heritages.
Ybor City is known as a melting pot of originality and culture based on its immigrant population. This all-day event features the traditions of the cultures that have influenced the community and still thrive today. Take a stroll through the historic district and experience the old and new of Ybor City.
Sponsorship opportunities are available for those who would like to join the excitement of Fiesta Day. Information can be found on our website at www.ybor.org
