48% of Money Spent at Small Business is Recirculated Locally.

Support small businesses when you shop and dine small this holiday season.

More than 100 million people came out to #ShopSmall and #DineSmall on Small Business Saturday 2017, but it not to late to support all the small businesses on Hillsborough Street.

The Hillsborough Street district is blessed to have one of the highest concentrations of local business owners in Raleigh. Merchants in the district offer plenty of options for shopping, dining, or grabbing a locally-produced stage performance. As the semester comes to a close on Friday, December 1, a lot of parking spots will open along the street. So, skip the mall traffic and pick up a unique gift of experience this holiday season.

ComedyWorx and Goodnight's have a full slate of shows on their calendars, as do performing arts organizations such as Sonorous Road and Arts NC State. There are still a few tickets left for the annual holiday productions of A Christmas Carol and Cinderella.

Looking for local art? Visit Green Monkey or Lucky Tree Gallery and Cafe and you will find everything from postcards to original pieces for your child's room.

Give the coffee connoisseur in your life a bag of beans from one of the many locally owned coffee shops on Hillsborough Street.

Is your uncle a big foodie? Take him to Irregardless Cafe before the next Hurricanes game.

Know a mom who could use a night on the town, yoga class, or massage? Bundle a show at Theatre in the Park, dinner at Gonza Tacos y Tequila, and a class/massage at Evolve Movement. All three of these locations are within walking distance of each other.

Live It Up! Hillsborough Street sends a monthly enewsletter containing information on various activities in the district.
