Events & Festivals

There’s always something amazing happening here in St. Pete/Clearwater. From major annual festivals to concerts by national touring acts, the action is nonstop.


The wide variety of annual events means there’s truly something for everyone. Listen to the biggest names in jazz at the Clearwater Jazz Holiday, get your groove on at the Reggae Rise Up festival or get all bluesy at the Tampa Bay Blues Festival.

Families flock to the nightly Sunsets at Pier 60 celebration, Sanding Ovations sand-sculpting competition and, of course, all the fun holiday festivities.

The SHINE Mural Festival, Mainsail Art Festival and St. Petersburg Fine Art Festival are just three of the major art showcases.

Want to travel (briefly) to another country? Check out the Dunedin Highland Games & Festival for all things Scottish, or join the Tarpon Springs Epiphany Celebration in that Greek enclave.

And be sure not to miss St. Pete Pride in June – the biggest Pride celebration in all of Florida.
