Events & Festivals

In St. Pete/Clearwater, we know how to celebrate, and it shows in our multitude of events and festivals. From the food fests to music making on the water, from the wacky to the whimsical, there’s always something going on around here.  

Visit for John's Pass Seafood Festival in January, the Clearwater Offshore Nationals in September, and the legendary Clearwater Jazz Holiday music festival in October.

Holiday events are unique in St. Petersburg; the only “white Christmas” you’ll get is on the powdery white sands of our Florida beaches! Check out any number of lighted boat parades along the coast, a truly Floridian way to celebrate the holidays. In January, everyone heads to the Epiphany Celebration in the Greek community of Tarpon Springs.

Spring brings fantastic weather for sporting events such as the Firestone Grand Prix and the PGA TOUR’s Valspar Championship, both typically held in March. In April, you can’t miss the Tampa Bay Blues Festival or St. Pete’s Mainsail Arts Festival, two of our biggest annual events.

With June comes St. Pete’s Pride Fest, the state’s largest LGBTQ+ celebration. On the Saturday of each Labor Day, head to the totally wild and much-loved GeckoFest in Gulfport to celebrate the end of summer.

Please note that some events in 2021 may take place virtually, or in a different month than they typically occur. We look forward to welcoming you to St. Pete/Clearwater!
