Is there a better way to celebrate soda than with a festival? Float on over to the 4th Annual Sebring Soda Festival, April 1-3, 2022, to properly research the matter. With a family-friendly party atmosphere, more than 200 craft sodas to sample, craft beer & wine, live music and festive food, this is the fizziest festival in all of Florida.
The three-day festival, which is held in historic downtown Sebring, is a celebration of craft sodas and good, old-fashioned fun. If you enjoy scrumptious sips, bring your friends, family and even your dog to Sebring and pop in for an experience that is ‘sodalicious.’
The festival will feature traditional sodas, like colas, ginger ales, root beers, and cream sodas, plus countless unique sodas you can’t find in stores, including flavors like caramel apple, prickly pear, espresso, peach cobbler, candied bacon, key lime, cucumber, pepper soda, and more. And everyone loves to re-visit the many vintage favorites featured at the festival, such as Cheerwine, Moxie and RC Cola.
Most of the sodas at the Festival are made in small batches and most are made with real sugar or honey (no high fructose corn syrup). They come from all over the U.S. and many from small towns. Sodas from companies like Avery's Beverages (New Britain, CT), Sprecher Brewing Company (Glendale, WI), Fest Cola (New Orleans, LA), Boylan Bottling Company (New York, NY), Cheerwine (Salisbury, NC) Durango Soda Company (Durango, CO) and others will be available for tasting. Many of the soda makers and bottlers will be in attendance.
The festival will kick off on Friday, April 1 with the Fizzy Family Fun Night from 5-9 PM, and will include an outdoor fun including entertainment, a silent disco, family fun & games, sampling of 50 + soda tastings (Soda Tasting Tickets REQUIRED), and more.
The actual Soda Tasting & Main Event will take place on Saturday, April 2nd from 11am-6pm, with a block party style concert taking place from 6pm-9pm, then from Sunday, April 3rd from 11am-4pm. Soda Tasting Tickets, which are required to taste the 200+ sodas (different then the ones on Friday night), are available for purchase. There will also be vendors, shopping, a jam-packed entertainment schedule, food trucks and more.
