March Recurring Events
IndyCar Racing Series Grand Prix of St Petersburg
The Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg will be March 13 through March 15th in 2020.
This IndyCar race has been held in St Petersburg since 2009. And a recently renewed agreement means the race will be returning to the area for the next 5 years as well.
If you’re an IndyCar fan, the significance of the season opener needs no explanation for you. If you’ve never been to Grand Prix before, St Petersburg is a great place to get your feet wet.

Florida Strawberry Festival
Did you know about Florida’s love affair with the strawberry? No, not the orange. (Or any citrus, really.) The strawberry! The first time I visited the Florida Strawberry Festival I thought it might be somewhat unique. It’s not. There are strawberry festivals all over the United States and even some in Canada, Australia, Italy and Japan. You can find a website with links to worldwide strawberry festivals here.
But we’re talking about the Florida Strawberry Festival, held in (where else?) Plant City, Florida in late February and early March. 11 days in all.
The website is https://flstrawberryfestival.com. You van find out about rides & attractions, musical talent and visit the livestock show. Visit the website and signup for updates via email including 2020 dates!

2020 Florida Suncoast Tiny Homes Festival
Oh, the irony that the 2020 Florida Suncoast Tiny Home Festival needs a larger venue.
I should just stop there.
Anyway…The 2020 event will be held March 28 and 29th in England Brothers Park in Pinellas Park and will feature more than 30 tiny structures.
If you’ve been binge-watching Tiny House Nation, then this is for you. Where else can you try on so many small structures, even if just to assure yourself that your McMansion is perfect for you?
Still, as the owner of a 330 SF “tiny home”, I’m intrigued.

Gulfport Grand Prix
Reggae Rise Up Music Festival
It’s hard to think of better music for a festival than reggae.
And it’s even more difficult to think of a better location and time of year for any music festival than Vinoy Park in St Petersburg in March.
2020 Dates are March 20-22.
Visit the website at reggaeriseupflorida.com for festival info, including the lineup, tickets, what you can bring in and what you can’t and even how to get involved.
