Find Your Way to the Fun of Festivale 50.

Creative Pinellas, 12211 Walsingham Rd, Largo, FL 33778

Presented by

Festivale 50 is a Celebration of the Arts in Pinellas. You’ll find inspiring and innovative art, music and dance with interactive exhibits on the Midway. You’ll experience the fun of theatre, dance, music and art activities created by organizations you have helped support.

All artists and art organizations are 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 want to celebrate you for advocating for the arts in our area through PCF.

Admission is free with a PCF membership of $50 or more or $30 for nonmembers. One set fee enables attendees to enjoy festival food and experience activities such as trying a pottery wheel, listening to the Ruth Eckerd Hall traveling chorus, playing drums, oboe and other musical instruments, and engaging with working artists.
