Warmer weather is here to stay and in rolls the season of all the best festivals Florida has to offer. Margaritas and Food Trucks - it doesn't get much better than that...or does it? Sarasota is hosting an amazing margarita festival this month - and will be putting on a dazzling fireworks show.
This adults-only event on May 25th is slated to feature over 12 different variations of margarita to try, as well as a huge array of food truck options and games to play, all set to some DJ'd tunes to start. As the night goes on, live bands will perform while you munch away at your goodies! One of the announced food truck vendor's is Smokin' Momma Lora's BBQ who have some legendary lookin' pulled pork sandwiches.
Tickets range in price from $20 for a general admission ticket to $40 for a sampler ticket up to $100 for a VIP ticket. What's included in the higher priced tickets might actually be worth upgrading. The general admission ticket doesn't include anything extra, just entry to the festival with alcohol available for purchase.
The Sampler lets you have UNLIMITED free margarita samples, so you can try a little bit of everything they'll have, as well as access to full-size margaritas for purchase. The VIP ticket includes a lot of extras such as early access to the venue, reserved parking, OPEN BAR, a shaded patio area, air-conditioned lounge areas, and catered food.
Whatever ticket you decide to go with, everyone will get to see the show as darkness sets in over Sarasota. The whole night will be topped off with an explosive fireworks display that illuminates the entire sky. Booze, food, tunes, and booms - it doesn't get much better than that.
If you're ready for good tunes, tasty bites, and great booze, The SRQ Margarita Festival will be Saturday, May 25th from 2 pm to 10 pm. The event will be held at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, located at 777 N Tamiami Trl, Sarasota, FL 34236. You must be 21 or older to attend this event.
