Can you believe it? The St. Pete Pier just turned a year old! This birthday calls for foodie festivities and a spectacular celebration. Scroll below to find ways to celebrate an iconic symbol in St. Pete:

Sip, Sip, Hooray! Enjoy Craft Cocktails At Pier Teaki

Sit back, relax and enjoy stunning views, great company and killer cocktails. Our expert bartenders at Pier Teaki serve classic concoctions like Mai Tais and Rum Runners, frozen delights such as Strawberry Daiquiris and Piña Coladas and craft new fan-favorites like the Florida Hemingway and the Jungle Bird.

Venture On An Eco-Tour With Tampa Bay Watch 

Discover the beauty of Tampa Bay marine life during an eco-tour that includes bird spotting, identifying dolphins and manatees and more while you cruise along the bay. You can purchase tickets online at https://tbwdiscoverycenter.org/ or at the Tampa Bay Discovery Center located on the St. Pete Pier.

Taste, Toast and Treat at Teak 

Whether you prefer lunch, dinner, small bites or mouth watering desserts, Teak has it all. Enjoy a nautical-inspired menu featuring everything from tuna tartare, conch beignets, scallops and key lime pie. Celebrate your own celebrations with friends and family at unique dining areas in Teak that seat 15 to 20 guests. 

Support Local Vendors at the Marketplace

If you visit the Pier on the weekends, you can’t miss the Marketplace located near the Gateway. Here you will find local independent vendors selling unique items ranging from handmade jewelry to home decor. Enjoy the ample shade provided by the solar roof panels above you. Check out the Marketplace Friday – Sunday from 10am – 6pm.

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For…Ice Cream! 

Did you know our favorite holiday is almost here? No, not Christmas in July – even better – National Ice Cream Day is July 18! What better way to celebrate a birthday and national observance than a delicious scoop (or two…don’t worry we’re not counting) of hand-crafted ice cream at Driftwood Cafe? Choose from more than a dozen ice cream and shaved flavors or opt for a specialty drink like the Peanut Butter Iced Mocha.

Drones, Lights and Epic Birthday Celebrations, Oh My! 

300 drones + 500 ft in the sky = an unforgettable performance. Head over to Spa Beach Park on July 31st for the Duke Energy Drone Light Show that starts at 9pm. Enjoy live music, grab a bite and get ready for a spectacular show!
