Our 4th Annual Tampa Riverfest was held on May 4 & 5, 2018 along the Tampa Riverwalk.

Tampa Riverfest and the Tampa Bay Lightning partnered to bring the official Game 4 playoff watch party to Curtis Hixon Park on Friday, May 4th!!

Presented by Friends of the Riverwalk in conjunction with the City of Tampa, this free event will span the entire length of the Riverwalk and will feature family-friendly activities and events showcasing Tampa’s cultural institutions, local music and restaurants.

More than 8 bands were booked for the mainstage in Curtis Hixon Park with the headliners being The Black Honkeys and The Spazmatics on Friday and Saturday respectively. On Friday a new signature event called the Taste of the Riverwalk featured samples from local restaurants and bars that are located on or near the Riverwalk (sampling wristband purchase required). With Corona as the official Beer Sponsor and May 5th being Cinco De Mayo many festive elements were added to the events that day such as the Taco Fest.

A VIP Hospitality event was available that included unlimited beer, Tito’s Handmade Vodka Drinks, Food, and Front Row Access to the Main Stage. Check out 2018 VIP Hospitality tent HERE.
