List of Top Kirtan Venues

The kirtan community is growing in the Tampa Bay area over the recent years.

If you want to experience Kirtan for the first time or are new to the area, here are the top places to look at first

Sacred Lands

1620 Park St N, St. Petersburg, Florida, 33710
Doris Anderson and her husband Eric have done a fantastic job of keeping Kirtan alive and thriving in the Tampa Bay area for many years. Every Sunday Kirtan is at Sacred Lands at 6:30 pm and has been for at least the last 5 years. Hundreds of happy Kirtans have occurred there, and there is no fixed fee, just donate what you can, if you can.

http://sacredlandspreservationandeducation.org is the site for more information and links to other events they have.

A couple other things make sacred lands special and unique, one of which is that Sacred Lands is on the site of an ancient Native American Village, and they have tours where you can learn some of the history of native american peoples in the region. There are many interesting plants on the grounds, and also an indoor air conditioned facility where the Kirtans are held. Well worth checking out.

One thing a little confusing on your first time, is Sacred Lands often shows up as “Jungle Prada” on Google maps, or Jungle Prada de Navaez park. There is a bar/restaurant on Elbow lane right off of Park Street North, and if you follow that you will see a dirt place to the left, which is also where people taking the Ferry park. Thats the quickest way into Sacred Lands, and its easier and worth the trouble. So, don’t get confused if you see Jungle Prada, its the same place. Hopefully Google and Apple will fix this in the future.

Unity of Sarasota

3023 Proctor Rd, Sarasota, Florida, 34231
Sarasota Joe has been doing Kirtans almost every week there for the last couple of years and it is also by donation, and all monies collected from the kirtan are donated to a local charity. Unity churches are known for being a home to kirtan as well as many other faiths, but thanks to Sarasota Joe, Unity of Sarasota stands out as a great place to attend Kirtan in the Tampa Bay area.

Garden of the Heart Yoga Center

2888 Ringling Blvd, Sarasota, Florida, 34237
Cheryl Chaffee and her husband Tim are the owners of Garden of the Heart, and she hosts both community kirtans, and has a kirtan group MAHA, that does kirtan frequently.

Thanks to the Rockin Kirtan Band a couple times a month you can hear kirtan, and its a very nice community kirtan.
