Dream Weekend, the Caribbean’s largest party experience, comes to Tampa, Florida on Super Bowl Weekend, February 5-6, 2021.

After being forced to postpone its 2020 event in Jamaica due to COVID-19, the promoters moved the event to Florida, where a large percentage of Caribbean-Americans reside in the United States.

The event will be one of the few parties catered to Caribbean nationals during the Super Bowl weekend, which typically draws hundreds of thousands of fans from across the country.

Some 22,000 fans will be able to attend the big game this year at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, on February 7. But it is expected that even more fans will be in the state for the parties.

The Managing Director of Dream Entertainment, Scott Dunn said he’s already seeing massive support from Caribbean-Americans across the United States.

“The community of Tampa is really looking forward to it but we’ve also seen tickets being sold as far as Detroit and a lot of people from New York are coming. The whole diaspora knows Dream Weekend and travels to Jamaica for the event normally. The event on the island is about 65% international patrons from New York, South Florida, Atlanta and even London” he said.

The Tampa event is the first Dream Weekend to be held outside of Jamaica.

Dream Weekend Tampa will feature two events – on Friday, February 5 and Saturday, February 6 at the Dunns River Island Cafe, 11154 N 30th St, Tampa, FL 33612.

The first event, Dream Wknd Jersey Party, will feature Dancehall artist Konshens while the second, YUSH, will feature Baby Cham and Red Rat, with a host of deejays.

Dunn says that COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place at the event. “We’re not putting the venue at capacity because we want to enforce social distancing.”

Masks will be required at the venue and temperature checks will be done at the door.
