Summer Events & Festivals

The St. Pete/Clearwater event scene heats up in summer with the largest Pride event in the country and the high-adrenaline Warped Tour. If that wasn't enough, there's the daily (yes, we said daily) festival celebrating the sinking of the sun, Sunsets at Pier 60, where families can gather on the beach, listen to live local musicians, watch street artists perform, and even catch an evening outdoor movie.
