Tequila Fest USA Logo Woodlands BackyardCentral Ohio may be lacking in coastal beaches, but Tequila Fest USA is doing its best to make residents forget that fact.

Tequila Fest USA is coming to Columbus on September 22 at Woodlands Backyard, a sand volleyball and sports bar in Grandview. 

The first Tequila Fest USA event was a small launch party for a single tequila brand held in Cleveland seven years ago. The event, dubbed the Ohio Tequila Festival, was successful enough that Adam Bossin, founder of Tequila Fest USA, saw a chance to celebrate his favorite spirit on a larger scale, spreading to Cincinnati, Willoughby, Phoenix and now Columbus. Over 1,200 people attended Cincinnati’s second Tequila Fest held this summer on July 21.

“[Woodland’s] venue will probably be one of the best we’ve had between the vibes of the sand and all the space the parking lot provides” said Bossin.

Vendors will be stationed outside in the Woodland’s Backyard parking lot with over 50 different tequilas. Guests can enjoy their tastes outside in Woodland’s Backyard’s outdoor area, featuring picnic tables, volleyball courts, and an outdoor bar.

Tickets are $45 until September 9, at which time they increase to $50 until the day of the event. Guests can purchase tickets at the door for $55 (cash only). 

Tickets include admission, 12 tasting tickets, live entertainment, access to a cash bar featuring margarita specials, and a signature Tequila Fest USA T-shirt.

Details on live entertainment and food details are still to come, but Bossin notes that he’s dedicated to finding the perfect local restaurants and food trucks to provide tequila’s perfect pair: tacos.

“Tequila is the one spirit that brings out the best in people,” said Bossin. “They feel like they’re on vacation or a beach… it’s just a happy spirit.”

Tequila Fest Columbus 2018 will take place at Woodland’s Backyard at 668 Grandview Avenue on September 22 from 3:00pm – 7:00pm. Tickets on sale now at tequilafestusa.com/event/tequila-fest-columbus-2018/
