“The Experience South Pasadena program is a really cool idea. Love that I get to explore the city and try new places with the program while also supporting local business,” said one participant from a previous launch. Participation in the tours is free; there are two easy options to start:
Check in to each tour stop digitally by scanning the QR code at a participating business, or by clicking here; or
Pick up a printed brochure at City Hall, the Library, or the South Pasadena Senior Center to track your visits by pen and paper. Completed brochures may be submitted to the City Manager’s Office in City Hall, located on the 2nd floor of 1414 Mission Street, South Pasadena CA, 91030. City Hall is open Monday–Thursday from 7:30 a.m.– 6:00 p.m.

Upon the conclusion of the tours on May 2, 2024, the City and Chamber of Commerce will randomly select a participant that has completed the Crafted in South Pas tour to win a $50 gift card to a participating business of their choice. By encouraging residents and visitors to shop local, the program aims to stimulate economic growth within the community and illuminate the vibrant experiences that can be found here.
