The Historic South End has hosted one of Charlotte’s most popular Small Business Saturday events for several years. It’s a chance to support our local businesses, rather than the big box stores, and get out into the community.
Like everything else, South End’s Small Business Saturday is a little different this year.
In an effort to spread out the crowds, Small Business Saturday starts November 28th, but then goes on all season.
Keep checking the Facebook event for updates.
There will be pop-up vendors adding to the retail scene. These markets will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- November 28 | Atherton Mill and Market, 2000 South Boulevard
- December 4 | Design Center, 1930 Camden Road (or 101 West Worthington Avenue)
- December 12 | Atherton Mill and Market, 2000 South Boulevard
- December 19 | Design Center, 1930 Camden Road (or 101 West Worthington Avenue)
