Area Festivals

It seems like something is always going on in the Tampa Bay area: Bands of pirates threaten to invade Tampa during the Gasparilla Pirate Festival and berry farmers showcase their harvest at the Florida Strawberry Festival. Musicians gather for the Clearwater Jazz Holiday, while authors mingle with readers at the St. Petersburg Times Festival of Reading.

Taking place on the waterfront street course in downtown St. Petersburg, The Firestone  Grand Prix of St. Petersburg is among the most respected motorsports events in North America and features a week-long festival-like atmosphere that includes the fastest racing series on the planet, celebrity athletes, live entertainment and interactive activities.
