Mark your calendars for March 12.

Share on Nextdoor
On Saturday, March 12, the Raymond James Stadium won’t be packed with Bucs fans or sports junkies—but with lovers of tequila instead. The Tampa Taco & Margarita Festival returns next year, with tons of offerings and activities.

Besides an unforeseeable amount of margaritas and tacos, there will be different types of entertainment and activities, including live wrestling from Mission Pro Wrestling, a performance by pop singer Ryan Cabrera, and over 50 local vendors slinging their best wares.

Tickets start at just $12 and are available via Ticketmaster or in person at the Amalie Arena. VIP tickets run for $59 and include the opportunity to take a photo on the stadium’s pirate ship, while the $99 ultimate VIP tier features an exclusive lounge filled with all-you-can-eat tacos.

Kids ages 12 and under get in for free, so no need to find a babysitter either. There will be child-friendly activities—like face painting— scattered throughout the festival, so the kiddos won’t get bored watching you sip your 5th margarita. Just don't let them drive you home.
