Call for Entertainers

St Pete Pride is seeking submissions from performing artists of all disciplines for St. Pete PrideFest 2021. Whether you’re a DJ, band, solo artist, juggler, drag queen/king, dancer, comedian, community group or theatrical troupe, we want to hear from you!

Pride in St. Petersburg is typically the largest Pride celebration in Florida, and one of the largest events in Tampa Bay. (The pre-pandemic, three-day event brought over 250,000 people!) The first St Pete Pride took pace in 2003, and has since become a rite of passage for those within the LGBTQ+ community. Those who have attended can affirm: St Pete Pride in June can be the best getaway to the best summer of your life.

In 2021, PrideFest will include a month of events with multiple performers at venues throughout the area celebrating and supporting the lives and stories of Tampa Bay’s LGBTQ+ communities.

Performers participating in St Pete Pride may have the opportunity to be promoted through the St Pete Pride website, social media and beyond.

  • Submissions will only be accepted online. Mailed or hand delivered submissions will not be accepted. The online application can be found below
  • Artists are strongly encouraged to apply ASAP!

PrideFest is produced by St Pete Pride, a non-profit organization. The majority of events are supported and made possible by a large base of volunteers, public lenders, sponsors and St Pete Pride’s fundraising initiatives. PrideFest 2021 runs throughout June (view dates and venues here).

We encourage submissions to be made by May 5, 2021, for the best chance.
