Upcoming Events in Safety Harbor: Spring/Summer 2014


City of Safety Harbor seal.Summer is traditionally the slow season for special events in the Tampa Bay area, as people gravitate to the malls and the beaches when the temps climb into the 80s and 90s.

Of course there are still things happening here in Safety Harbor during this time of year, including the monthly Third Friday Music Series and the city’s big Fourth of July festivities among others.

Now that the bustling spring special events slate is behind us, it’s time to take a look at the summer calendar; the events might be fewer, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be great!

Info: Think “road race with pajamas and beer” and you’ve grasped the concept of this fun run that will feature craft beer, comedy and live music, plus the taping of a new Rhonda Shear TV show. All while wearing PJs. In other words, it’s not your typical road race!

What: Safety Harbor Fourth of July Festivities
When: Friday, July 4
Where: Downtown Safety Harbor and Safety Harbor Marina
Info: The City’s Independence Day festivities are recognized as some of the best in the area, thanks to the winning combination of a parade though the scenic downtown district coupled with a dazzling fireworks display over Old Tampa Bay. The parade kicks off at 10 a.m. and lasts roughly two hours, and then the colorful light show takes place at dusk and lasts until the final firework is fired!

In addition to these events the Third Friday Music Series will take place on May 16, June 20 and July 18, and the Farmer’s Market at the John Wilson Park Gazebo will go to a monthly schedule this summer, moving to Saturdays in June (21st) and July (19th) and August (16th).
