Big City Events is at it again, with the 2nd annual Summer of Rum Festival, taking place on Saturday, August 16th at the Cuban Club in Ybor City.

So what exactly is the Summer of Rum Fest? Think of it as the ultimate Caribbean Island Party and what better place to have it than right in the heart of Florida's beloved Ybor City.

The Cuban Club, a historic building and event complex built in 1917, will be transformed with Rum Shacks, Reggae-Soca-Island style music, street entertainment and of course, party goers enjoying rum inspired drinks.
