With the Tampa food scene growing at a mile a minute, having some of the best restaurants in one place is convenience at its finest.

Hosted by the South Tampa Chamber of Commerce, the Taste of South Tampa food festival returns to the Tampa Garden Club at 2629 Bayshore Blvd. for its 16th annual event. The festival happens on April 3, and runs from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Presented by Older Lundy Alvarez Koch & Martino law firm, the rain or shine event brings together local favorites such as 7th & Grove and Luv Child, as all participating restaurants will serve miniature versions of their most popular dishes.

The full list of vendors can be found here.

Tickets range from $40 - $100—as general admission, military, and VIP options are three separate tiers. Kids 10 and under are free, while anyone under 18 must be accompanied by someone 21 or over.

GA includes the unlimited and diverse selection of food and beverage samples, access to its beer garden and so much more. Those wanting first dibs of the plethora of eats can get a VIP pass, as its main perk is early entry alongside access to an air-conditioned space and swag bags. 

The Taste of South Tampa Facebook page also states that there will be live entertainment and opportunities to win prizes at next weekend's event.
