Back for another year—its 17th year, actually—the Taste of South Tampa hosts yet another rendition of its hyper-local foodie festival.

The Tampa Garden Club at 2629 Bayshore Blvd. will host this annual celebration of local eats on Sunday, March 19 from 1 p.m.- 4 p.m.

Tickets to next month's rain-or-shine event run from $50-$100 and can be purchased on the festival's Eventbrite page. VIP ticket holders can access the festival's unlimited eats a bit early, in addition to having their own air conditioned tent and a few more food and drink options.

While VIP folks get a few more perks, all guests at next month's event will be able to sample bites from dozens of South Tampa restaurants, vendors, and small businesses.  In addition to unlimited samples, there will also be access to a cozy beer garden, live entertainment, giveaways, and opportunities to win different prizes.

Although entire list of food vendors has not yet been released, guests can expect bites from Tampa hotspots like Bolay, Luv Child, Shake Shack, Sweet Soul, 7th + Grove and Outback Steakhouse, and sips from popular brands like Stella Artois,  Blue Ice vodka, Planet Smoothie and Kona Brewing.

Additional restaurants that are available to VIP ticket holders will be announced next week, according to Taste of South Tampa's social media. 

For the latest information on the event's food and drink lineup, head to its website or Facebook page.

Like previous years, Taste of South Tampa is presented by the Chamber of South Tampa and sponsored by local law firm Older, Lundy, Koch & Martino.
