WineFest 2024: Grapebusters

For more than two decades, Tampa Theatre’s signature fundraiser WineFest has shown up for some of the most important moments in cinematic history with themes like How the West was Wine, The Vineyard of Oz, Rebel Without a Cork and last year’s Forrest Grape. But there has been one supernaturally superior wine pun that has been haunting us for a long time. So this year, WineFest will manifest with Grapebusters – presented by SouthEast Personnel Leasing – on March 1 and 2. Learn more at

On Friday, March 1, a two-tiered Wine Tasting – presented by The Orlo House and Ballroom – invites you to taste dozens of boutique wines and sample favorite fare from Tampa’s top independent restaurants from 7-10pm.

On Saturday, March 2, the Theatre’s historic stage will be expanded to seat more than 275 for the elegant Wine Pairing – presented by Quality Carriers Inc. – from 6-10pm.

WineFest guests are encouraged to dress as their favorite character or come in a Ghostbusters-inspired costume. The Wine Tasting and Pairing events are restricted to those 21 and older.
