St. Petersburg, Fla. (March 17, 2020) – The City of St. Petersburg has issued a statement that “Beginning immediately, at the guidance of the CDC, the City of St. Petersburg will not allow an event or public gathering that consists of more than 50 people until further notice. Examples of such events include festivals, parades, concerts, sporting events, parties, weddings, and similar assemblies. This applies to public and private property.”
Due to the statement above, we regret to inform the wonderful community of St. Petersburg that the Duke Energy Center for the Arts – Mahaffey Theater in downtown St. Pete will be temporarily closed.
We at The Mahaffey Theater take the utmost pride in bringing entertainment and lasting memories to our theater-goers. We appreciate the love and support everyone has shown us over the years and will begin business again as soon as it is safe to do so.
We strongly believe our city, its businesses and most importantly, the amazing people that create the community we all love, will persevere during this time. We wish everyone nothing but good health and safety throughout the upcoming weeks. These precautionary actions have been taken with St. Petersburg and its residents’ best interest in mind.
The Mahaffey Theater would like to again thank everyone for the continuous support and we look forward to seeing you again upon reopening.
