Kick off the holiday season with all things local. Join us at South Straub Park for an all day shopping extravaganza. Shopapalooza Festival is a production of LocalShops1, Tampa Bay’s most active advocate for local businesses. The event is in its eighth year! The community celebration takes place every year in downtown St. Petersburg the Saturday before Thanksgiving and the Saturday after Thanksgiving (aka Small Business Saturday). Admission is, and always will be, free.
Shopapalooza Festival features more than 130 local shops, artists, food vendors and service providers. Add to the mix: free entertainment, extensive kids’ zone, music, acrobatics, raffles and prizes! The event is family-friendly, and well-behaved pets on leash are welcomed.
