Gasparilla Music Festival Announces Food Line
The Gasparilla Music Festival (GMF) presented by Coppertail Brewing Co. announced its official food lineup for the annual music fest taking place February 25-27, 2022, in Tampa’s Curtis Hixon Park. GMF’s award-winning food vendor row, dubbed Calle Cocina, features both innovative and traditional street fare prepared by local, independently owned, and operated restaurants.
Ty Rodriguez, co-owner of Tampa’s Rooster & the Till, is back at the helm as GMF’s Food & Beverage Director. “We are excited to announce this year’s Calle Cocina lineup,” said Rodriguez. “We have an amazing lineup of festival favorites along with some new faces for 2022.”
GMF has added five new operators to this year’s lineup – Big Red BBQ, Blind Tiger Coffee, Chill Bros Scoop Shop (Sunday Kids Fest only), Clam Master Jay, and Coppertail Brewing Co. These additions round out one of the most diverse ‘food’ festivals in the state and offer a broad slice of Tampa’s ever-growing food scene.
Joining the new restaurants are returning festival favorites; Big Ray’s Fish Camp, Cafe Hey, Cena, Dough Nation, Ella’s Folk Art Cafe, Ichicoro, The Independent, Kona Ice, Lolis Mexican Cravings, Nebraska Mini Mart, Shadrach’s Fiery Furnace, and Whatever Pops. With an incredible selection of food, drink, music, and more, GMF 2022 is a true celebration of all things Tampa Bay.
