About Creative Loafing

As a free weekly publication, website, content marketing, and event company, Creative Loafing Tampa Bay has served the Tampa Bay area for more than 33 years with its cultural and news coverage.

We do more than inform the community. We're a part of the community — we're advocates, consumers, influencers, and entertainers as well as reporters and promoters, invested and involved in every aspect of local and regional life in both professional and personal roles.

Our news desk's mission has always been the same: To further create a more informed public and contribute to the formation of a just community by offering a consistent and free medium that is critical, fair, and focused on highlighting underserved and underreported voices and opinions.

Readers in our music, food, arts and entertainment sections trust us to share the best Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and beyond have to offer, and we strive to create meaningful conversations and relationships to the benefit of all.
