Fiesta Day this Saturday, February 26th

Ybor City Chamber Hosts Free "Street Festival"

(Tampa, FL)  Ybor City celebrates its 64th Annual Fiesta Day this Saturday from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM.  This free, family-oriented traditional event honors the Cuban, Spanish, Italian, German and Romanian immigrants that settled Ybor in the late 1800s.


"Come out and enjoy 'Chamber of Commerce weather' in our National Historic Landmark District," invites Tom Keating, President of the Ybor Chamber.  "See Ybor City, 'the heart and soul' of Tampa, at its very best!"


Ybor's own restaurants will be featured in the Sabor de Ybor.  Guests will be able to graze from one end of La Setima to the other.  The Arte de Ybor will include not only our own "creative retail," but also a juried art show for up and coming, young artists at the Relevant Church on 16th Street.


The Maxima 92.5 Main Stage will feature Javier - Sambras Flamencas, The Danny Lozada Band and Supernatural, a Santana tribute band.  Local arts-magnet schools and the HCC Jazz Ensemble will perform on the Centro Ybor Youth Stage.


Fiesta Day 2011 is presented by BB&T Bank and sponsored by Verizon, Maxima 92.5, Centro Ybor, the St. Petersburg Times, City of Tampa and Ybor City Development Corporation.  For more information visit or call 813.241.8838.
