Since its inception, Best of Tampa Bay – the Straz Center’s signature fundraising event and Tampa’s longest running culinary fundraiser – has generated more than $2 million to benefit the Center’s programs.  Because of events like Best of Tampa Bay, everyone in our community has the chance to discover the life-changing impact of the performing arts.

Located along the Straz Center’s spectacular riverfront, this event features food samplings from many of the Bay area’s finest restaurants and caterers.  Ticket prices include unlimited food samplings, full open bar, specialty wine and beer tastings and live music.

For more information about this event, please contact the Straz Center’s Special Events Department at 813.222.1275.

Thanks to our sponsors, participating restaurants and breweries, featured entertainment
and most of all – our attendees – for making this past year’s fundraiser the most successful
Best of Tampa Bay in event history!
