In Tampa Bay, any excuse to celebrate will do and locals break out the fireworks, parade floats, food vendors and live entertainment nearly every month for the area's fantastic line up of festivals and events. While the cool and breezy days of spring draw the largest concentration of festivals, Tampa Bay plays host to a myriad of events from professional and amateur sporting events to world class dance, theater, concerts and shows year round. Tampa Bay's festivals and events showcase the best in entertainment, food, drinks, music, arts and culture, film and fashion. Treasure awaits in Tampa Bay! Once the world’s Cigar Capital, Tampa Bay is a vibrant region that takes pride in its rich, cultural heritage. Visitors can experience delicious culinary cuisine, serene river excursions, thrilling attractions and exceptional shopping. Explore by land, air or sea – share your treasures, discover new ones and together we will unlock something new. Enthusiastic Tampa Bay Lightning (hockey) and Storm (arena football) fans and hip concertgoers dig in to inspired fare at the Amalie Arena. With a revolving menu that draws inspiration from the main event inside the forum – after all, Beliebers will certainly have a different palate than hockey buffs – The Firestick Grill completely changes the perception of “arena food.” Whatever the score of the game, Holy Hog BBQ wins every time with Texas style smoked brisket and pulled pork sandwich combos loaded with jalapeno macaroni and cheese and corn fritters drizzled with maple syrup and powdered sugar y’all.
