Everyone knows about Black Friday, but Small Business Saturday, the next day, November 24th, 2018, is a movement to remind shoppers of the value of small, locally owned businesses. The Historic South End is making Small Business Saturday into a big event.
The event, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, November 24th, 2018, will feature three one-day only pop-up markets, and a free trolley to get you from one to another. Descriptions from Facebook event.
Make sure to stick around for the South End Tree Lighting at 5:30 p.m. at Atherton Mill.
Park anywhere or ride in on the light rail: we’ve got you covered so you can leave your car and spend the day carefree. Start your day at 11:00 am in one of the three festival hubs:
Camden Road, start at W. Worthington Avenue and Camden Road, arm yourself with a map (and directions from a friendly tour guide) and set out to explore the great shops, restaurant and art galleries on and around Camden. Pop-up shops will line the street and the brick and mortar shops will have doors open, music playing and specials throughout the day. Then take the free trolley to the next stop…
2525 Distribution Street, with Dudeapalooza at C3 Lab. 11am – 5pm. Plentiful parking, local shops featuring gifts for dudes (and no potpourri), original works of art for sale, and more. Then take the free trolley to the next stop…
Lincoln Street, between S. Church and S. Mint, where pop-ups will line the streets, and you can explore music, shop for gifts, art and holiday decor, and enjoy locally crafted beverages. Then take the trolley back to grab a bite to eat or back to where you started
