MARK Saturday November 30th as


Just in time for the holidays, Downtown Burlington is celebrating with a day of SHOP THE HOOD Celebrations – our way of saying thank-you to an amazing Burlington community.  It will be a day of exclusive promotions and savings – all in time for the holidays!

Come downtown and enjoy special promotions and exclusive sales throughout the downtown from retailers, restaurants, spas and salons, health & wellness professionals and more!  It will be a great day to get your holiday shopping started (or finished) and maybe pick up a few things for yourself too!

For a list of participating downtown businesses visit shoptheneighbourhood.com.  Businesses are joining daily so you will want to check back often to see the promotions they are planning.   Follow us on Twitter and use the hashtag #shopthehoodburl to see what’s happening “just in time” in downtown Burlington.

Don’t forget to pick out a comfortable pair of shoes for a day of fun!

As we prepare for November 30th, we are randomly awarding prizes from our downtown businesses to participants in the Burlington Downtown  ♥ OUR HOOD Contest





We love downtown Burlington for so many reasons… the people, the food, the fashion, the great spaces…. but we want to know what you love, what makes THE HOOD a place you love to be.

Finish the sentence “I ♥ OUR HOOD because….” in words, a picture, a video – however you want to tell us.

Send it to us via Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, email – however you want to connect and we’ll “share your love” and be awarding gift cards at random courtesy of downtown businesses.

Then join us for our Downtown Burlington lovefest on Saturday November 30th when Downtown businesses will show their LOVE by offering promotions and special features as part of SHOP THE NEIGHBOURHOOD Celebrations. It’s our way of sharing the LOVE with you.


We don’t want to miss any of your Love… so make sure your emails, posts, tweets etc. include

  • the words “I ♥ THE HOOD
