While our friends up north salt the roads, we'll be sitting back salting our margaritas at this year's Tampa Bay Margarita Festival 2018 on Memorial Day Weekend!

But this year, they're making it bigger and better. With TWO whole days of sunshine and tequila, what more could a girl want? In addition to adding an extra day, the Tampa Bay Margarita Festival 2018 added a few more nifty tricks to make this year's festival run as smooth as the tequila you'll be tasting. They've implemented a new RFID wristband system, so no more waiting in double lines for tickets, as well as doubling up on bartenders in each bar so that the drinks will keep flowing.
