Single Day Food & Craft Beer Competition & Music Festival
The original Beer & Burger Throwdown returns to Safety Harbor with 7 Local Breweries and 12 Artisan Burger Chefs competing for the title of Best Brew, Most Creative Craft & Best Burger. This family-friendly, live, in-person event brings the best burgers and brews to Safety Harbor, FL at Safety Harbor Waterfront Park. This Live in-person competition is a bit different from other Craft Beer events because the local breweries are on site pouring their latest creations themselves and can answer any questions about the brewing process, ingredients, and history of their brews. All adult beverage sales benefit the Rotary Club of Safety Harbor and tickets benefit the Chi Chi Rodriguez Youth Foundation.
