The 3rd Annual National Cuban Sandwich Festival will be held at the historic Centennial Park located in Ybor City, Tampa from March 22-23, 2014.
Ybor City is one of only two National Historic Landmark Districts in Florida and is also considered the “Cigar Capital of the world” because of the Cigar factories and history of the city.
Founded in the 1880’s, Ybor was originally populated by immigrant workers and cigar manufacturers that came from Cuba, Italy and Spain. You can still see the history of the place in its old buildings, Spanish style architecture and brick paved streets that give the city a Latin culture feel.
The Centennial Park in Ybor is centrally located; it is close to downtown Tampa and the Channelside district making it very accessible to the Cuban Sandwich Festival goers.
Ybor is also home to the Ybor City Museum where you can learn more about the history of the place. This means that not only are you going to be able to enjoy a nice Cuban Sandwich at the festival but you can also enjoy a nice stroll through one of our more historic cities and learn more about Tampa’s cultural heritage.
See you at the Festival!!
