GAYBor Days 2009

Various Events in Historic Ybor in Tampa

Known as Tampa’s Latin Quarter for over a century, Ybor City is an exotic blend of aromas, flavors, sights and sounds.  Founded in 1886 by Vicente Martinez-Ybor as a cigar-manufacturing center, Ybor City today is one of only two National Historic Landmark Districts in Florida.  Red brick buildings, wrought iron balconies and narrow brick streets give it an old-world charm that is a refreshing change of pace from the beach and the mall. Gaybor Events center around Ybor City and take place for one week. Here is a brief breakdown of what’s going down in Ybor!
