Fiesta Day

Late February
Held for more than 50 years, Fiesta Day celebrates the multicultural heritage of those who settled Ybor (Ee-bore) City, which is part of Tampa, Florida. Cuban, African-Cuban, Italian, and Jewish immigrants made Ybor City their home in the 1880s, and their influence is still felt in Tampa's Historic District, where this festival takes place. Celebrants can enjoy the diverse food, drink, music, and arts and crafts that reflect the character of Ybor City.
