Saturday, Nov 30th is a special day for small businesses in America. Started 10 years ago by American Express to celebrate the small businesses who were getting overlooked because of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Small Business Saturday has helped revitalize downtowns across the country. Come be a part of the 10th annual holiday shopping tradition that brings together communities in support of their favorite small businesses. Find out how you can get in on one of the biggest days for the Shop Small Movement.

Support your favorite local spots or find new ones

Come celebrate Small Business Saturday in the Village as we boost awareness and support for our local small businesses. Enjoy shopping specials, discounts and merchant hospitality as you “Shop Small.” With music playing throughout downtown Carlsbad, many of the locally-owned businesses in the area will participate in the “Shop Small” campaign "Small Business Saturday." Look for an icon in the window of participating businesses.

Fun all day long

Starting at 10am, at the corner of State St. and Grand Ave. the Carlsbad Village Association will be giving away 20 Shop Small tote bags each hour, as well as smaller CVA tote bags and some Farmers’ Market bags too. You will also have an opportunity to enter a Gift Card Giveaway (no purchase necessary) for a chance to win gift cards to Village retail stores and restaurants. We will text one lucky winner every 30 minutes and they will have a half hour to come and claim a gift card of their choice from the Gift Card Giveaway tree at the CVA booth. Participating businesses will be offering shopping and dining specials.
