Sparkman Wharf announced that snow is coming to the waterfront food and entertainment lounge this December. The entire area along the Tampa Riverwalk will transform into a winter wonderland.

The slopes are coming to Sparkman Wharf as it hosts Snowed Inn Sparkman on Thursdays in December. Beginning December 1, the lawn will become the ultimate post-slope hangout complete with oversized holiday cards, Instagram-able photo ops, swings transformed into ski lifts, bonfires with cozy blankets and a log cabin stage with unique, seasonal entertainment. 


On Thursdays, December 2, 9 and 16, the forecast at Sparkman Wharf gets even cooler with falling snow, a Feelin’ Pine Hot Toddy Bar, a specialty ski store pop-up called Apres Ski Essentials by Joyful Notion and more!

Festive entertainment include eclectic musical performances by Adriana Sparkle and Mayven Missbehavin, roaming characters like snow bunnies, comedic snow patrols, and a snow beast. The winter wonderland will kickoff on Wednesday, Dec. 1 with a tree lightning ceremony celebrating the longer nights of winter. 

In addition, at each Thursday Snowed Inn Sparkman event, the first 50 guests to spend $50 or more at Sparkman Wharf will receive an exclusive TAMPA sign ornament designed by local artist, AbbiCreates. The limited edition ornament will be on sale at Apres Ski Essentials.
