The perfect event for music lovers and seafood lovers returns to downtown St. Petersburg this weekend, as the 4th Annual St. Petersburg Seafood and Music Festival runs from Friday to Sunday January 28-30 at 350 2nd Ave. NOT.
Admission is $10 on Friday, $15 on Saturday, and $7 on Sunday. Tickets can be purchased at the festival or online at eventliveus.com, but children under 14 can enter for free. The 4th Annual St. Petersburg Seafood and Music Festival runs from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
Although there is no information online about the specific range of seafood, previous years of the festival have had different stalls selling a special dish. Expect to see different types of seafood offerings at this weekend’s festival, from fish and chips and lobster tempura to fried Cajun alligator, blackened grouper and grilled mahi mahi.
Other non-seafood products, including local art, cigars and desserts, will also be on sale at this weekend’s festival, alongside booze (of course.)
A plethora of Tampa Bay bands provide the musical backdrop for this seafood festival, so you don’t have to hear the sounds of people sucking crawfish and cracking crab legs.
Friday night headliners include blues-rock bands Stormbringer, Albert Castiglia and Pat Travers, while Saturday headlines are country-rock band Joshua Scott Jones, St. Pete Selwyn Birchwood and the Soul Circus Cowboys, a southern rock band. Funk-rock band The Black Honkeys and classic rock band Atlanta Rhythm Section close out the festival as Sunday night headliners.

There are several parking lots near downtown St. Pete’s Williams Park, including Plaza Tower, Sundial, South Core and MAACM Garage, if you’re not lucky enough to park on the street .
