The BB&T 67th Annual Fiesta Day
Saturday, February 22nd from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM
The 67th Annual Fiesta Day is a free, family-oriented “street festival,” celebrating the cuisine, culture and heritage of the Latin immigrants who settled Ybor City at the turn of the 19th century. Fiesta Day started out as a “verbena” or day of rest for cigar workers who settled Ybor City from Spain, Cuba and Italy.
Today, Fiesta Day features ethnic food and entertainment along famed Seventh Avenue. La Setima (or 7th Avenue) is closed to traffic for the day, and exhibits, café areas and entertainment for the entire family to enjoy are set-up from 15th to 20th Street. Sample “gourmet street food” from Ybor restaurants along with exhibits by cultural destinations, quality arts & crafts vendors and ethnic music on our 7th Avenue Stage.
The Maxima Stage stage hosted by Nandy Dáliva (sidekick on the the Ñeko Morning Show) will feature Orlando’s Latin American bands La Calle and Latin Wave Quartet along with Tampa's SOMOS Flamenco Company. It will be a great line up worthy of dancing in the streets!
