TASTE @ The Straz 2019

Since its inception, Best of Tampa Bay (now known as TASTE @ The Straz), the Straz Center for the Performing Arts’ signature fundraising event, has raised more than $2.5 million for the Center’s arts education programs. Events like these allow us to continue providing the community with the life-changing impacts of the performing arts. We hope you will join us as we celebrate 34 years of this tasty event.
