What to do in St Pete This Weekend: It’s All About Local


Localtopia is finally here. This Saturday from 10am-5pm there is no other place to be than Williams Park for everything St Pete. This is the fifth year Keep Saint Pete Local has put on the celebration of local artists, makers, food vendors, and musicians. Here are some tips on getting to the vent and what not to miss.


Getting there


Williams Park is conveniently located in the center of downtown, but street parking can be a bear. If you live within biking distance, there will be a bike valet available for you to use. If you cannot walk or bike, we suggest using the parking garage at Sundial (117 2nd Ave N) or First United Methodist Church (across from the park at 212 3rd Street N) for a $10 donation to the church.


Don’t miss this


Music! Mayor Rick Kriseman opens the festival at 10am, and music will start right after on the William’s Park Stage. Who we love: Mountain Holler (10:15am-11am) and Rebekah Pulley and the Reluctant Prophets (2pm-2:45pm).


Vendors! Frank Strunk III – Amazing metal work artist who did a custom piece for this downtown apartment. Keep St Pete Lit – promoting St Pete’s literary community.

Beer! If craft beer is your thing, stop in to Cage Brewing and Flying Boat Brewing.
