ST. PETERSBURG FESTIVAL
Celebrate The Arts!
Celebrating St. Petersburg’s well known reputation as a leading arts and cultural destination, the Suncoasters of St. Petersburg will again present the SPFestival (formerly SPF 15) a celebration of the arts throughout September.
SPFestival features events and activities produced by local and national artists, arts organizations and arts-related businesses in and around the City’s unique arts districts. Last year some 50 arts and cultural events were spotlighted over the month.
SPFestival will again kick off with the St. Petersburg SHINE Mural Festival, followed by weekly spotlights on all the arts, including fine arts, performing arts, and a family arts festival in conjunction with the Central Ave Solstice Festival.
“We celebrate the arts and we encourage the business community to embrace SPFestival and engage the arts in their day-to-day businesses.”

It is a great way to bring new visitors to the city and a great way to highlight our artists and arts organizations to prospective visitors, media and residents.”
