Saturday, February 22, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
St. Pete’s beloved festival, Localtopia, is back and bigger than ever before. Mark your calendars for Saturday, February 22nd from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. This year’s festival is expanding by one more city block, which allows for more vendors, and a second music stage on 3rd Street. The bigger footprint, which already included Williams Park and its surrounding streets, will showcase more than 250 of St. Pete’s favorite independent businesses and community organizations. This will be the biggest Localtopia to date, and one of the biggest events in our area!
Local Art and Handcrafted Goods
Localtopia features art, makers, artisanal and handcrafted goods, books, boutiques, home decor, a dozen “vendors on wheels," vinyl, vintage, and other merchants in various villages in the park, and the surrounding streets. One of the newest villages is the #AllThingsPlants Village, located in the middle of Williams Park. Here’s where you can find many plant-based foods, beverages, and products.
Eat & Drink Local
Eat Local at the “Food Truck Rally Alley” or on Restaurant Row, and enjoy sweet treats all over the fest. You can Drink Local too! Local breweries will be pouring their own special brews on 2nd Avenue + there will be a beer truck with your fave local beers, and the “Local Thirst Stations” will also have canned local beer! Check out the new Mimosa Bar on the new 3rd Street Block, or the “Bubble Room” in front of the Bandstand in the park.
This event is perfect for the whole family. There will be free demos and crafts for kids spread throughout: activities at the Family Village, street games, painting a bus on 3rd Street, art and literary experiences, hooping, a photo booth, and much more to keep all ages entertained.
While shopping, you will be sure to hear music echo through the park from the Bandstand, and from the DJ, plus the additional stage on 3rd Street. Listen out for local artists including Shevonne Philidor, Ari and the Alibis, and Danfield, among the almost dozen bands, which will be performing on the Bandstand and the new “Visit St. Pete/Clearwater Street Stage.”
Don’t miss out on St. Pete’s largest community showcase event Saturday, February 22nd. This FREE event will be sure to engage the whole family for the whole day!
