Shop Local &
Shop San Rafael all year long!
Shop Small Saturday during the San Rafael Parade of Lights & Winterwonderland on Nov 26th is the kick-off event that provides us an opportunity to honor and celebrate the hardworking folks that are creating jobs, fueling the economy, enriching our lives, supporting local organizations and preserving our unique culture in San Rafael.
By shopping local and small, and by using local services, the majority of your money stays within our own community.
Throughout the Holiday season, you can support Downtown San Rafael’s small local businesses and entrepreneurs and encourage local friends and residents to shop local in our unique and varied shops, both Downtown and in the West End Village.
Consumers can also dine local by enjoying dinner out or grabbing a drink at a Downtown taproom or brewpub. Relax and pamper yourself in our many health, beauty, holistic, and timesaving service businesses in San Rafael!
Enjoy FREE 3-HOUR PARKING in all City Lots and Garages from Nov. 26 - Jan 3. Weekends are always FREE!
