A big empanda festival is coming to Tampa…or should I say returning to Tampa. After the remarkable success of its first iteration, Brewed Life Events is bringing back the family-friendly extravaganza. The 2nd Annual Tampa Bay Empanada Festival arrives at Perry Harvey Sr. Park (1000 E Harrison St) in downtown Tampa on April 6. Click HERE for tickets.

This vibrant event blends toe-tapping music, a tantalizing assortment of empanada vendors, and a lineup of refreshing cocktails for the grown-ups to relish. In total, there will be 30+ empanadas to savor from more than 20 select vendors. Additionally, the event will include live music, DJs, and family-friendly games.

Those who purchase VIP tickets will also enjoy unlimited margaritas, one free empanada from any vendor, access to a private lounge, cocktail and spirit samples from local distilleries, extra bathrooms, more games, and access to an exclusive VIP area.

The Tampa Bay Empanada Festival is dog-friendly, but all dogs must be leashed while at the park.

Confirmed vendors include Sous, Dunedin’s Fusion Street Eatery, Nonna’s Artisan Empanadas, Pabellon Food Trailer, Get Stuft, and The Empnada King. More will be announced on the Empanda Festival’s website.
