A huge rum and seafood festival is happening in Tampa this June

This June the Summer Rum and Seafood Festival will take over Tampa Premium Outlets. This spirited festival will include samplings of sensational rum and all the seafood (boiled, fried, and blackened) your heart desires. Live bands play all night with Best of Both Worlds, Van Halen/Sammy Hagar Tribute for a day benefitting the North Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce.

The event is set for June 3 from 4pm-10pm, and tickets run from $10 from general admission, $35 for rum bucket tickets, $70 for Gold VIP. You can reserve your festival tickets online.


An array celebrated local distilleries from across Central Florida will be on hand sampling tasty cocktails and pure spirits, with full size drinks for sale at each bar. All adult beverage sales will also benefit the North Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce. The event will feature over 12 Seafood vendors and local Wesley Chapel restaurants of all sorts and sizes, plus all your festival favorites for those who are a little seafood shy.

Visitors will get to witness crab races, and see live mermaids because of course there are mermaids at a Florida festival. The witty, and rum happy Captain Seb will also be strolling the festival with his pirate friends to entertain guests and of course judge the many cocktails available.


North Tampa Bay Chamber will announce official distilleries and participating food vendors as the event gets closer. Follow them on Facebook, and visit the Eventbrite Page for updates.

The Summer Rum and Seafood Festival takes place on June 3. Tampa Premium Outlets is located at 2300 Grand Cypress Drive. Florida Penguin Productions will next host Suncoast’s Largest Food Truck Festival 3.0 at The Mall at UTC on July 1.
