Girls Rock St. Pete Invites the Community to Show Up for Girls July 23 at Jannus Live

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – For the fifth year, Girls Rock St. Pete will conclude their July 18 – 22 “Power Week” – a transformative summer camp focused on self-care, fearless expression and building community – with a final concert open to the public on Saturday, July 23 at Jannus Live from 5 – 9 p.m.

With the goal of having 1,000 in attendance, the community is encouraged to show up for girls and gender-expansive youth at this energetic event. The showcase will feature one opening band and eight camper bands, a silent auction, raffles, trivia, crafts, and interactive stations including photo and community booths, and a drag performance.

Girls Rock St. Pete’s grassroots efforts are fueled by gracious individual and business sponsors, and passionate volunteers. This year’s “Power Week” is full with campers, but volunteers are needed, as well as individual and business sponsors for the Jannus Live concert.

Concert sponsorship opportunities range from the “Kathleen Hanna” at $100 for one VIP ticket to the Girls Rock concert with reserved seating, one drink, and your name in the official Girls Rock printed program – to “The Supremes” title sponsorship for $10,000 with advertising and social media benefits, an original song written for your business and performed live during the concert, 10 VIP tickets, an official guitar presented for display and signed by all campers, and more. Donations and sponsorships can be secured via

Between 8 – 14, girls’ confidence levels drop 30% and often stay low throughout adulthood negatively impacting long-term professional success and mental health. As girls take risks and see the payoffs, they gain the courage to take more risks and become resilient.

“Girls Rock St. Pete empowers girls to take up space, use their voices and see each other as allies instead of competition,” said Executive Director Jesse Miller. “We serve girls and gender expansive youth ages 8 – 17, regardless of their ability to pay or play.”

“At Girls Rock we build self-worth through resilience and collective care,” said Founder Rachael Sibilia. “Our volunteer base is a passionate crew of people and many roles don’t require musical skills. The “Vibe Tribe” runs daily activities like the morning scream circle, social justice workshops and afternoon yoga. Men are welcome to volunteer in supportive roles as part of the “Dude Crew.”
