Shopapalooza Festival is less than two weeks away, and we have exciting updates on Tampa Bay’s kickoff to the holiday local shopping season!
— Vendor Spots are SOLD-OUT. This is our fifth annual Shopapalooza, and the biggest one ever, with more than 130 local businesses participating. Vendors include some of the area’s top businesses and cultural organizations, including the Dali Museum, Morean Arts Center, Mahaffey, Chihuly Collection, Pipo’s Cuban Cafe, Bo-tiki, Lance Rodgers Fine Art, VLVT Salon, Growing Up and a ton more. Several are making their first-ever appearance, too!
