How ‘Bout That Rummmm Fest?

How ‘Bout That Rummmm Fest?

Rumfest (or officially, the Summer of Rum Festival) was more festive than ever this year at Curtix Hixon Park in downtown Tampa. Thousands braved the rain during the day to enjoy a beautiful sunset and rain-free night under the stars, with craft rum cocktails and a line-up of live bands, with multi Grammy-winning artist Shaggy as headliner.

 Our bartenders were mixing some delicious creations, such as our Grilled Pineapple Spritzer for the long lines at our booth, which was perfectly located near the VIP tent and with a good view of the stage. Our menu was:

We launched our new "it’s all rum and games" t-shirts. They're now on sale. Get yours!

We gave out 1,500 tiki mugs at the event. If you didn’t get one, you can get one here.


It was a great night and we hope to see you at our next event, the Tampa Boat Show, October 13-15.
