Don’t miss the ‘sodalicious’ fun at the Sebring Soda Fest
SEBRING, Fla. (Jan. 31, 2019) – Is there a better way to celebrate soda than with a festival? Float on over to the 2nd Annual Sebring Soda Festival April 5-6 to find out. With more than 200 craft sodas to sample, soda cocktails, live music and festive food in a family-friendly environment, this is the fizziest festival in all of Florida.
The two-day event, held in historic downtown Sebring, is a celebration of craft sodas and good, old-fashioned fun. The festival will feature traditional sodas such as colas, ginger ales, root beers, and cream sodas, plus countless unique flavors you can’t find in stores, including caramel apple, prickly pear, espresso, peach cobbler, candied bacon, key lime, cucumber, pepper and more. Soda fans can also re-visit many vintage favorites including Cheerwine, Moxie and RC Cola. All of the craft sodas at the Festival are bottled in small batches and most are made with real sugar (no high fructose corn syrup). They come from all over the United States, including many from small towns. Sodas from companies like 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 kicks off on Friday, April 5 with a Rockin’ 50s Block Party. The soda tastings take place on Saturday, April 6 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and are free to attend during the day. Tasting tickets are required to sample the 200+ sodas, and can be pre-purchased at http://www.sebringsodafest.com/. Tickets to the Pop & Fizz Cocktail Tasting & Pairing Party for adults 21 and older on April 6 from 4-8 p.m., are also available via the website.
Sebring, located just 60 miles south of Disney World, is home to Sebring Soda & Ice Cream Works, an old-style soda shop carrying 300+ types of craft soda. Outside of the soda experience, Sebring boasts nearly 100 crystal clear lakes for fishing and boating, more than a dozen of Florida’s most affordable championship golf courses, one of Florida’s oldest state parks, and is a reminder of why everyone loves authentic Florida. Our gently rolling hills, orange groves and the region’s charming small towns make this a relaxing country getaway with a central location.
