Creative Clay Fest (formerly Folkfest St. Pete) is a celebration of original art and live music. We are excited to announce Creative Clay Fest on Saturday, November 9 from 11a to 8p at Creative Clay, 1846 1st Avenue South, St. Petersburg! This amazing music and art festival is now in its 13th year. Hosted by Creative Clay, the festival was created to draw good folks to the mission of Creative Clay and to raise funds to support this community-minded arts center for people with disabilities. Come see and/or purchase folk art from folk artists around the southeast and meet the folk artists of Creative Clay. This year Creative Clay will feature not only prominent regional folk artists, but also local artists.
