Please note that, while most events and festivals have been canceled for 2020, we expect them to return in 2021.
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 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.
