Shop - Eat - Repeat
Now in its 12th year, Small Business Saturday continues to be an annual holiday shopping tradition — just one part of the shop small movement to support small businesses every day and everywhere. Historic Downtown Glendale’s shops and restaurants will celebrate Small Business Saturday on Nov. 26, 2022, starting at 10 a.m.
When you Shop Small on Small Business Saturday, and all year long, you can help create a big impact. Small Business Saturday is the perfect opportunity to shop for unique holiday gifts, enjoy a leisurely lunch with family and friends, all while supporting locally owned businesses. Visitors to Downtown Glendale’s Small Business Saturday are encouraged to stay into the evening to enjoy the Glendale Glitters holiday light display.
Start your Small Business Saturday journey at the Arizona Information Center located at 5836 W. Palmaire Ave. Knowledgeable Downtown Docents will welcome visitors and provide walking maps and downtown shopping and dining information.
Historic Downtown Glendale's Entertainment District is actually two distinct neighborhoods!
Old Towne's brick-trimmed sidewalks and glowing gaslights lead the way to the famous eateries, antique shops and specialty stores.
Historic Catlin Court features a wonderful collection of unique boutiques and one-of-a-kind eateries. Located in mid-century bungalows, the area is surrounded by picket fences and mature shade trees.
The pedestrian friendly area spans 10 square blocks. Free covered parking is available at the Palmaire Parking Structure located at 5835 W. Palmaire Ave.
We are a must see when visiting the Phoenix area. We look forward to seeing you soon in Historic Downtown Glendale - A Real Hometown Happening!
