TASTE at The Straz, a food festival with 40+ local restaurants, returns to Tampa this April

This article is sponsored by Straz Center for the Performing Arts and TASTE at The Straz

The Straz Center’s annual eat-and-drink extravaganza returns for one delicious evening on Saturday April 27th. TASTE at The Straz puts you on Tampa’s beautiful Riverwalk with access to the Bay area’s best food, craft brews, cocktails and more. With indoor and outdoor access to over 40 restaurants, 10+ craft breweries and four stages of live music for one all-inclusive price, TASTE at The Straz is a fun evening of eating, drinking and indulging in our region’s extraordinary epicurean culture.

TASTE at The Straz is more than a fun evening in downtown Tampa. As the Straz Center’s signature fundraising event, this event raises essential funds needed to keep the arts alive in our vibrant city. The proceeds not only sustain the Straz Center’s artistic programs on its stages but also support their education and outreach programs throughout the community.
