U.2.0 (a U2 tribute band) and country group Southbound 75 will be headlining the main stage at this year’s festival.
St. Petersburg Shrimp and Music Festival
If seafood celebrations are your thing, and you are missing the John’s Pass festival above, have no fear! A few weeks later – from January 27 – 29th – St. Petersburg will be hosting its 5th annual Shrimp and Music Festival. Similar to that above, this event is full of incredible food options, vendors, and music all day long. As a family-friendly festival, kids under the age of 14 can attend for free! St. Petersburg, by itself, is one of many Florida locations certainly worth a visit.
The Return of The Glenn Miller Orchestra
Arguably the world’s most famous big band and swing dance group is returning to the Treasure Island area on January 22nd and will be playing a concert at the Mahaffey Theatre in St. Petersburg.
