Exciting news! This year’s Tampa Bay Margarita Festival will again be using our RFID-enabled wristbands and cashless payment technology to enhance your festival-going experience!
Your personalized festival wristband is your ticket to get into the Margarita Festival faster and will also be used to make purchases at the festival – all with a simple tap of your wristband!
This means you don’t have to worry about walking around the festival with your wallet or fumbling for change; instead, enjoy fast, convenient and secure transactions at all food vendors, beer gardens, and merchandise tents on-site using your high-tech, RFID-enabled wristband.
