Geckofest

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.  Geckofest has grown to become one of Tampa Bay’s most anticipated events of the year. Live music and vendors throughout the village are all part of the fun. Strolling and stationary street performers are now also a hallmark of the Geckofest tradition.

Gulfport’s 16th Annual Geckofest brings entertainment to streets and stages during a daylong spectacle on Saturday, September 3rd, 2016. The theme for this year’s Gecko events is “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.”

Amid the thousands of festival-goers, hundreds of vendors and dozens of live musicians, expect to come face to face with acrobats, aerialists, break dancers, escape artists, magicians, jugglers, fire performers and more, creating an interactive circus atmosphere throughout the waterfront village. All festivities take place on Beach Boulevard in Gulfport from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

There is no admission fee for the pet and family friendly event, and complimentary parking is available with gratis trolley rides to and from off-site parking areas.
