The St. Petersburg Fine Art Festival, co-sponsored by the City of St. Petersburg and Manatee County-based Paragon Festivals, will be set up in South Straub Park Saturday and Sunday (Feb. 27 and 28).
It’s St. Pete’s second large-scale outdoor event since the start of the pandemic, following Localtopia on Feb. 20.
Now in its eighth year, this one isn’t exactly local; it’s pretty much your standard issue outdoor spring art festival, bringing in “more than 100 artisans from throughout Florida and across the United States,” according to Paragon, showing and selling original painting, photography, sculpture, metalwork, digital art, jewelry, glass, ceramics, woodworking, mixed media, fiber art, metalwork and more.
The layout will be sufficiently spaced, and masks are required for all artists and attendees. Artists will have hand sanitizers in their booths, and hand sanitizer stations will be spaced throughout the event site.
Hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. both days.
