Soda Festival in Sebring, Florida

Submitted by on February 26, 2019 – 8:36 amNo Comment

Soda Festival, Sebring, Florida Special to Road Trips for Foodies

Some call it soda, others call it pop or a soft drink. No matter how you refer to these sweet, bubbly beverages, they’ll be tasted and celebrated at the 2nd annual Sebring Soda Festival in Sebring, Florida on April and 6, 2019. 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, 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, Wisconsin), Fest Cola (New Orleans, Louisiana), Boylan Bottling Company (New York, New York), Cheerwine (Salisbury, North Carolina) Durango Soda Company (Durango, Colorado) and others will be available for tasting. Many of the soda makers and bottlers will be in attendance.

The festival kicks off April 5 with a Rockin’ 50s Block Party. The soda tastings take place 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 online. Tickets to the Pop & Fizz Cocktail Tasting & Pairing Party for adults 21 and older from 4 to 8 p.m. April 6 are also available via the website.

Sebring, located 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.Sebring Soda & Ice Cream Works, Florida
