Your Tampa Markets announced the re-launch of its monthly open-air festivals at Water Works Park, starting this month with the Fall Music & Arts Fest on October 2nd and 3rd.
All-local music, food and art by the water? Sign us up. This Saturday and Sunday, Tampa Riverwalk’s Fall Music & Arts Fest is bringing all of that and more to Water Works Park as the monthly themed markets return to Tampa.
Hosted by Your Tampa Markets, the festival will welcome Tampa area singer/songwriters, food trucks and food vendors, local artists with one-of-a-kind paintings, and local creators showcasing handcrafted wares. Festivities take place from 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday, October 2nd, and from 10 am to 4 pm on Sunday, October 3rd.

Vendors participating in the market include everything from boozy popsicles and Cajun gator jerky, to handcrafted macramé decorations and floral paintings. Portrait artwork can even be commissioned on site. You can grab a beer from Coppertail Brewing, snag a snack for your pup (dogs are allowed), and find some ice cream for the kids.
The Fall Music & Arts Fest is the first in what will be a lineup of monthly open-air markets October through May. Upcoming events include the International Food and Art Fest in November, a Holiday Pop-Up in December, and a Fitness/Lifestyle Festival in January.
