In Partnership with the city of Clearwater Parks and Recreation Department
The Sunsets of Pier 60 Festival made its debut on March 17th, 1995 and is a 501(c ) 3 not-for-profit organization. The Festival originally ran from Thursday evening through Monday evening until June 1998 when it expanded to seven nights a week.
The year-round nightly sunset celebration at Pier 60 Park begins two hours before until two hours after sunset, weather permitting, 364 days per year. This free, family-friendly event features artisans, crafters, street performers.
The purpose of the Sunsets at Pier 60 Festival is to promote Clearwater Beach and Pinellas County as a prime tourism destination. The festival strives to enhance the guest experience by encouraging longer stays while providing visitors and residents with additional evening entertainment options following their days spent relaxing on the beach.
