Event Summary
Join us on March 2-3, 2019 for the 3rd Annual St. Petersburg Seafood & Music Festival this year to be held in Vinoy Park.  The event was a stellar success in 2017 & 2018. We will continue to build on this success. As with all of our seafood & music festivals, the event is a blending of foods prepared onsite by local restaurants and food purveyors, a refreshing selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic refreshments and live onstage musical performances by local and regional entertainers.  The event also features a 'village' of crafts and fine products, many with a nautical theme, although a nautical theme is not a pre-requisite for acceptance into the event.

General Information

Explore new horizons as we continue to grow this new tradition in the St. Petersburg/Tampa area: the St. Petersburg Seafood & Music Festival.  If you are a food vendor, crafter or product vendor consider becoming part of this event and broadening your market.  The event seeks the following:


ARTISANS & CRAFT VENDORS:  Please read the Rules/Regulations section below.  We are seeking arts and crafts with a nautical theme.  This does not preclude other art genres from applying.  Other types of vendors such as culinary items (e.g., sauces and dips) or products (e.g., soaps, lotions, candles, cooking accessories, packaged food items) and t-shirts are welcome to apply as these items do not need to be handmade.


JURY PROCESS:  Applications are now being accepted.  The jury meets weekly and acceptance letters are sent out to accepted fine artists and craft vendors each week until all available spots are filled at which time artists will be placed on a wait list.

March 2, 2019:   setup continues from 7 am to 9 am. All vehicles must be offsite at 9:00 am.
