Namaste at 7am

As the sun rises in the east, yoga studios and participants from across the city will be joining in one large unified session at South Straub Park. Peace of Yoga is our yoga sponsor this year so please make sure to say thank you to Peace of Yoga for sponsoring this year's Sun Salutations! Every yoga business and their clients are welcome to come & join us for community yoga at no cost!

In addition to yoga, this year we will have special guest, Master Gary Grooms, hosting Tai Chi and Matt Bartlow of Gulf Coast Fit, Inc. hosting our  fitness boot-camp class.

This is just the beginning of a full day of Central Avenue Solstice activities and specials! After a wonderful morning of yoga, tai chi & fitness, several restaurants and cafes along Central Avenue will be featuring Sunny Side Up Breakfast and High Noon Lunch, leading into a cornucopia of art, four stages of live music, more food, and more drink, along the entire route of Central Avenue. The festivities will culminate with St. Petersburg Preservation’s special presentation of Movies in the Park in Sunset Park on the west end of Central Avenue.

Central Avenue Solstice is a new, exciting annual event for St. Petersburg, celebrating our city’s main thoroughfare (Central Avenue) and all that it has to offer with music, arts, food, drink, and activities. The event takes place on Saturday, September 24th from sunrise to sunset. This is the Saturday nearest to the day that the sun rises on the east end of Central Avenue, and sets on the west end at the beach. Central Avenue Solstice is also part of SPF-15, a two week festival celebrating all that is St. Petersburg, September 10th – 25th.
