Presented by: Old Pasadena Small Businesses

Various participating small businesses

Did you know that Old Pasadena is home to more than 150 one-of-a-kind businesses that offer distinctive merchandise, dining, and service? These locally owned small businesses, found “Only in Old Pas,” line the quaint side streets and alleys of our historic district. Our roster of merchants also counts nearly 40 additional businesses that display an independent spirit – businesses that offer only a few locations and lend to that special vibe of Old Pasadena.

Celebrate all of Old Pasadena's small businesses with the Shop Small event on Small Business Saturday, when merchants offer special promotions, discounts, treats, and the chance to say "hello!" to your neighborhood store owners and restaurateurs.
