Saturday, November 24 2018, the Audubon Park Garden District celebrates Small Business Saturday, a national day to promote shopping at small businesses. Over 97% of the APGD businesses are independent and locally owned, each with its own unique story, products and hardworking owners who contribute so much to our community. Their passion and commitment to the neighborhood and to their customers are what make this area so special, so we hope you'll support them on Saturday. And every Saturday, really, but especially this Saturday.
New this year, shoppers will receive a Small Business Saturday re-useable canvas bag with purchase at any of the participating small businesses (list coming out soon), while supplies last. Five of the bags given away on Small Business Saturday will include a golden ticket, each one redeemable for a pair of passes to our Retro Modern Home Tour and After Party, which returns April 6, 2019.
2 to 5 p.m. - Enjoy live music al fresco throughout the district.
Tinsel and Tidings Window Walk and Contest. This holiday season, our businesses will decorate their windows and shops with creative holiday displays for all to enjoy. The fun and festive creations will delight residents and visitors who can vote for their favorite beginning Nov. 24th. Just snap photos of your favorite decorated windows and/or interiors, post to Instagram or Facebook, use the hashtag #apgdtidings and tag the business and you're automatically entered to win an APGD gift basket.*
2 to 5 p.m. - Shop Small Sip and Stroll. With multiple stops, you'll sample boutique wines, craft beer and cider throughout the district.
