Mainsail Art Festival started in 1976 when the city's Bicentennial Committee, the Saint Petersburg Recreation Department and the new Saint Petersburg Arts Commission joined forces to sponsor the "First Annual Saint Petersburg Sidewalk Arts and Colonial Crafts Festival."
For the second show, the name was shortened. "Mainsail" was chosen in 1977 to convey the event's importance, its excitement and marina setting on the waterfront South Straub Park.
This year marks the 42nd Anniversary of the festival. More than 100,000 visitors come to enjoy and purchase quality art and enjoy top name entertainment. The Mainsail committee of hard-working volunteers produces this festival exhibiting artists competing for $60,000 in prize money.
Mainsail will be held on Saturday 9AM - 6PM and Sunday 10AM - 5PM. The weather forecast is perfect. Sunny, but cool with low humidity. I hope to see you there!
