Shop 'Till You Drop at South End Pop-Ups

Small businesses make South End shine, and the entrepreneurial spirit in the neighborhood is thriving. 

South End's pop-up events are full of retail magic, as local small businesses offering everything from homemade hot sauce to fine leather goods to thoughtfully written children's books can share their unique products with the neighborhood, all alongside some of the city's most beloved retailers. Add in live music, food trucks, Instagrammable moments, and some super cute four legged friends, and you'll want to stay all day.

Camden Commons

South End's main street, Camden Road, transforms into an outdoor living room in the spring, where you can hang out, discover new food, play games, listen to music, and get creative as if you were in your own living room (you don't even have to change out of your sweatpants). 30+ local vendors also line the street so you can shop while you play.
