Barenaked Ladies to headline Tampa Bay Margarita Festival in Curtis Hixon park

15

December

Canada's known more for Molsons than margaritas. But one of the country's top musical exports could change that by coming down south next spring.

Barenaked Ladies will headline the 2017 Tampa Bay Margarita Festival, May 27 at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park in downtown Tampa. Joining the One Week pop-rockers will be the Getbye, the Whole Damn Mess, the Dives and more.

Barenaked Ladies are the biggest headliners in the event's five-year history, although that might not make a huge difference -- some 13,000 turned out last year to see Smash Mouth. The fest's appeal has a lot to do with the 50 or so flavors of margarita being made on site, as well as a ton of food, games and fireworks.

You don't need a million dollars to get in, either. A limited number of pre-sale GA tickets are available now for $15; after that, it'll be $20 and up. Mind you, tickets only get you inside the park; margaritas and food are extra.
