Gulfport’s 14th annual Geckofest will bring entertainment to the streets during a daylong spectacle on Saturday, Aug. 30, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The event combines the artistic energy of Gulfport with the colorful flair of Mardi Gras, amid the thousands of festival-goers, hundreds of vendors and dozens of live musicians on two stages. There will also be mimes, magicians, jugglers, acrobats and fire dancers, creating an “up close and personal” circus atmosphere throughout the Gulfport Waterfront Arts District.
Each year, Gulfport celebrates the end of summer with its largest festival of the year, dedicated to the town’s unofficial mascot and favorite reptile.
The quirky family friendly street festival has grown to become one of Tampa Bay’s most popular events.
Entertainment in the streets is one of the hallmarks of Geckofest, with many both strolling and stationary performers interacting with visitors.
A costume contest and parade, a fire and acrobatics show, and a street dance round out the day.
Admission is free.
Complimentary parking is available nearby with courtesy Gulfport Trolley rides available from off-site parking areas during Art Walks and Geckofest.
All events and activities are located near the area of 3129 Beach Blvd. S.
