Ybor City Chamber’s Fiesta Day is a family-friendly, FREE “street festival” celebration commemorating the Cuban, Italian, Spanish, Jewish and German immigrants that settled in Ybor City in the late 1800’s as the cigar factories thrived. Fiesta Day attracts families and people of all ages.
The event originally started as a “verbena” or day of rest for the cigar workers who settled in Ybor City’s “Cigar Capital of the World” from Spain, Cuba, Germany and Italy. It now attracts thousands of passionate people to the festival’s exquisite ethnic food and entertainment.
Fiesta Day is the only event which closes Ybor City’s famed “La Septima” or 7th Avenue to traffic allowing pedestrians to explore the historic streets freely.
Join J.C. Newman Cigar Company and many other Ybor institutions as we celebrate the unique culture which built Cigar City through food, arts & crafts and music.
