Cosponsored Events

What is a Cosponsored Event?

A cosponsored event is held by or for the benefit of a local nonprofit group.
The City celebrates events and welcomes you to be a part of our celebration! An average of 90 events take place in the City of St. Petersburg yearly. When you consider there are only 52 weeks in a year, we have a lot going on here.

To qualify as a cosponosred event, at least one of the following criteria must be met in addition to the event being held on City parkland:

  • There is an admission charge, AND/OR
  • There is selling/vending services, merchandise, food and/or drinks, AND/OR
  • Donations are solicited or accepted (including off-site or advanced donations) AND/OR
  • Alcohol is being served/sold
