This family-friendly, FREE “street festival” celebration commemorates the Cuban, Italian, Spanish, Jewish and German immigrants that settled in Ybor City in the late 1800’s as the cigar factories thrived. Fiesta Day attracts families and people of all ages. The 72nd Annual Fiesta Day promises great musical talent. Tampa City Ballet will be closing out the Centro Ybor Stage show around 5pm.
Join us for a fun day of festivities and celebration.
Fiesta Day started out as a “verbena” or day of rest for the cigar workers who settled in Ybor City’s, “Cigar City Capital of the World” from Spain, Cuba, Germany and Italy and now attracts thousands of passionate people to the festival’s exquisite ethnic food and entertainment. Ybor City’s famed “La Setima” or 7th Avenue is closed to traffic and the festival celebrates the “Best of Ybor” and includes ethnic food, arts & crafts, and ethnic music on our 7th Avenue Stage.
Tampa City Ballet will close out this Festive Ybor Celebration. Join us at the Centro Ybor Stage around 5pm on Saturday, February 23rd, 2019.
Hope to see you there!
