Best Hotels for Tampa, FL Summer Festivals


The Tampa Bay area offers one festival or another all year-round: a reflection not only of our fabulous subtropical climate but also our vibrant arts-and-culture scene. And with summer now unfolding, the festival calendar gets really jampacked.


You couldn’t ask for better accommodations for Tampa-area summer festival-going than Saddlebrook Resort, meanwhile. Our sprawling Walking Village in Wesley Chapel, FL offers luxury guest rooms and suites and a whole bevy of upscale on-site amenities, including some truly world-class golf and tennis facilities as well as multiple restaurants and lounges.

A Sampler Pack of Tampa’s Upcoming Summer Festivals & Events

There’s too much going on across the summer season in the Tampa Bay area to properly cover in a single blogpost. So instead we’ll just point out a few upcoming events for which Saddlebrook Resort serves as primo accommodations!


Downtown Tampa’s Curtis Hixon Park will once again be hosting the free Rock the Park summer concert series, which takes place the first Thursday of every month at 6:30 PM.
