Seafood, music and art will mix at a new three-in-one festival planned for downtown St. Pete.

From 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. March 25 and 26, the St. Petersburg Seafood & Music Festival, announced last week, is set to bring two days of entertainment and local food to North Straub Park. Dishes, prepared on-site by area restaurants and purveyors, consist of meat, vegetarian and seafood options. But each seafood plate will feature indigenous, sustainable catches from Florida waters. Adult beverages and non-alcoholic drinks will be available as well.

On the live music side, regional and local on-stage performances range from soul and classic rock to salsa and jazz (peep the lineup). A Crafts Village, showcasing many nautically themed arts and crafts alongside gourmet food items, will also keep festgoers entertained throughout the weekend.

Tickets are $3 in advance or $5 at the gate, while access to the VIP tent, which includes a T-shirt, open bar and private lounge, costs $50. The fest is co-hosted by the City of St. Petersburg and the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance.
