Performers at the Sponge Industry Folk Arts Festival

Date

Collection
Florida Folklife Collection
Description
Twenty-two color slides. Many of the images are dark (peformers -- not all identified--performed under a tent). The festival was held June 24-25, 1989 to celebrate Tarpon Springs heritage of sponge diving, a practice that dated back to the 1890s. By 1905, when 500 Greek immigrants answered an ad to be sponge divers, the town acquired a distinctive Greek flavor, as the Greek Americans thrived in the sponge industry. At one point, Florida provided 95% of the nation's sponges. Although today over fishing and synthetic materials have undercut the sponge diving industry, the tradition lives on in Greek families, and through tourism.
