2023 St. Pete Festival
Serving as the first host port of the TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® Gulf Coast 2023 race series, St. Pete is honored to welcome a fleet of historic ships from harbors through the United States and Spain, March 30-April 2, 2023.
Immerse yourself in our nation’s rich maritime history while aboard these celebrated ships. The grand fleet will be docked along the St Petersburg waterfront. The event begins with a dramatic Parade of Sail on Thursday evening and features a display of four traditionally rigged sailing vessels crewed, in part, by youth.
