Sunsets at Pier 60 remains one of the premier hidden gems in Clearwater Beach, a gorgeous, peaceful waterfront community west of Tampa. Travel Resort Services (TRS) has an extensive collection of condominiums, villas, and resorts in Dunedin, Indian Shores, Redington Shores, and several other nearby cities, all of which are minutes from the most popular Clearwater Beach events. Sunsets at Pier 60 has evolved into one of our favorite things to do near St Pete Beach. Every day, families and casual beach-goers have the rare opportunity to observe daring live performances, shop for handcrafted artwork, and watch a classic flick as the sun sets below the horizon.

Daily Live Entertainment

What’s genuinely incredible about Pier 60 is that it’s open to the public 365 days a year—yes, even on holidays. As one of the only daily Clearwater Beach events, locals and traveling families alike flock to this magnificent, free entertainment hub seven nights a week. The live performers at Pier 60 are called “buskers.” These rousing performances are free, spontaneous, and kid-friendly. You’ll have the opportunity to observe escape artists, fire breathers, stilt walkers, magicians, and impersonators. You just never know what kind of hijinks these talented artists will get themselves into on a given evening.

“Crafters”

Many of the area’s best craftspeople sell their unique artwork and showcase their abilities at Pier 60. You’ll discover everything from handcrafted jewelry to spray art. All of these local artists welcome visitors to approach their stands to chat about their craft. Return home with jewelry, photographs, hair products, painted sand dollars, candles, makeup, night lights, or a painting. Sunsets at Pier 60 is one of the only Clearwater Beach events that provide shoppers with an eclectic mix of souvenirs 365 days a year.

Sunset Cinema

Every Friday and Saturday evening, hundreds of families gather at Pier 60 Park to watch a classic film or recent release at dusk. Families are encouraged to bring along a soft blanket or low-lying lawn chair to go along with your snacks and beverages. There will also be inexpensive concessions available, including buttery popcorn! This summer, Sunsets has screened new releases, such as Mary Poppins Returns, Bumblebee, and Shazam. But we particularly love it when they play an older flick, such as Mulan, The Mighty Ducks, and Miracle. If you’re searching for free Clearwater Beach events, it doesn’t much more relaxing than an evening at Sunset Cinema.
