South End Small Business Saturday


Kick off the holiday shopping season in South End on Small Business Saturday, November 25, 2017, 11:00 am – 5:00 pm. 

Explore the local shops, restaurants and breweries that you can't find anywhere else, and peruse gifts at a three one-day-only pop-up markets featuring local and handmade businesses. 

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 East-West Boulevard and Camden, 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 Starving Artist Market pop-up art market will be happening at Charlotte Art League, 1517 Camden Road. Then take the free trolley to the next stop...

- At 2525 Distribution Street, C3 Lab will host Dudeapalooza, open studio and sales from C3 resident artists, pop-up shops from nearby businesses and food trucks. Plentiful parking. Then take the trolley to the next stop...

- Lincoln Street, between Church and Mint, where pop-ups will line the streets, and you can explore music, oustanding curated shopping for gifts, art and decor, and locally crafted beverages. Then take the trolley back to grab a bite to eat or back to where you started...
