Small Shop Saturday returns this weekend

Small Shop Saturday returns this weekend

The Downtown Kelowna Association (DKA) is pleased to announce the return of Small Shop Saturday this weekend on Saturday, April 29, 2023.

Over 50 participating Downtown Kelowna businesses will feature one-day specials, product demonstrations, and in-store events or promotions. Some participating businesses will host Small Shop “Pop-Ups” by opening their spaces up to artists, artisans, crafters and/or market-style vendors for the day.

While Small Shop Saturday includes sales and special offers, the promotion’s focus is truly on how much small businesses contribute to our regional economy. Supporting locally owned businesses helps fight inflation, keeps dollars and jobs in our community, and adds to the vibrancy, diversity, and livability of Downtown Kelowna.

Visitors to Downtown Kelowna for Small Shop can play the Small Shop Hero Contest for their chance to win a prize package. Small Shop “Hero Cards” can be picked up anytime now through Saturday at all participating businesses. Players in the contest must collect three (3) stickers from participating businesses before entering their completed Hero Card at one of the four (4) entry locations. One winner will be chosen and will be announced on Wednesday, May 3, 2023.

This week, followers of the DKA’s Instagram account may notice the Small Shop “Social Media Takeover” featuring reels and content from many of the participating businesses.

A list of participating businesses, special promotions, and full contest details are available on the Downtown Kelowna website.

On Saturday, April 29, 2023 only, the first two hours of on-street parking will be free. Time restrictions apply beyond the first two hours, and drivers must still use the pay-by-phone app or any pay station to register vehicle plates. Parking is free in all three City of Kelowna parkades (Library, Memorial, and Chapman).
