Shop Pasadena on Small Business Saturday
The City of Pasadena and Visit Pasadena launched the “From Pasadena, with Love” campaign to put a spotlight on the city’s independent businesses and encourage shopping and dining local this holiday season. Small Business Saturday, November 27, will feature Welcome Stations across the city, offering a chance to win Pasadena-branded swag and experiential gifts unique to Pasadena.
When you head to Old Pasadena to support our nearly 200 small shops and restaurants, start your day by stopping by one of our three Welcome Stations with extended hours. Pull a gift tag from the "red box" for a chance to take home Pasadena-branded enamel pins, water bottles, tote bags, and more.
