Small Business Saturday

Shop Local! Shop Downtown Annapolis

The Saturday after Thanksgiving

Small Business Saturday has become an annual event for our downtown Annapolis business districts.  It has been over 11 years since we started celebrating our small local businesses on this day. These are the businesses that make your community unique and special. Every day we all vote with our dollars on which businesses we want to see continue to be in our communities. Shopping at your favorite Small Business on this day brings the community together to reinforce to our local business owners that you appreciate them, as they appreciate you.

The day is devoted to supporting your local independent retailers and restaurants. 


Have fun and shop in Downtown Annapolis at your favorite small business. Enjoy the special hometown service and the unique selection you find from your locally owned retailers. If you are unable to visit Annapolis you can shop our 90 stores online by clicking here. You can order restaurant gift cards by clicking here.

Today is also the start of Gift Card Bonus days which runs through next week in downtown Annapolis.

We have free parking all weekend at the Calvert Street Parking Garage at 19 St. John's Street, 2-hour free parking on commercial streets starts on Small Business Saturday and most business downtown has a limited supply of 2-hour free parking passes (with purchase) for Gotts Court Parking Garage.

City residents can park at the city-owned parking garages for free for 2 hours when they pick up parking passes in advance at 60 West Street.
