Annual Cuban Sandwich Festival Returning to Ybor
The 11th Annual International Cuban Festival returns to Centennial Park in Tampa on May 29th.
The annual Cuban Sandwich Festival is returning! Same as in previous years, this year participants will do their best to set a world record when they construct a Cuban sandwich longer than 200 feet in length! Vendors in the past have traveled from all over including Los Angeles, France, Atlanta, and even South Korea to compete for the "Best Cuban Sandwich" title. This year's goal is to build a whopping 245ft long sandwich. The completed (extra large) sandwich is donated to feed homeless people in the area.
The festival takes place on May 29, 2022, from 12 - 6 pm. Attendance is free, but VIP tickets are available for purchase. VIP tickets include access to the exclusive VIP area, sampling of the Cuban Sandwich contest entries, and refreshments. Festival attendees will enjoy live music performances and will have the chance to cast a vote in selecting the best sandwich at the event.
The event takes place at Centennial Park - located at 1800 East 8th Avenue. See you there!
