Celebrating 50 years of Community Support

Presented by

Festivale 50 was a Celebration of the Arts in Pinellas. There you found inspiring and innovative art, music and dance with interactive exhibits on the Midway. There was theatre, dance, music and art activities created by organizations you have helped support.

All participating artists and art organizations were recipients of grants bestowed by Pinellas Community Foundation (PCF). The grant awards help greatly to fill the gap left by deep cuts in statewide funding for cultural endeavors. And we wanted to celebrate you for advocating for the arts in our area through PCF.

Art transforms lives for the better, heals neighborhoods, improves education and learning, and is a tool for diplomacy, recovery, and discovery.Robert L. Lynch President and CEO of Americans for the Arts
