“Experience South Pasadena” is new program aimed at promoting local businesses and fostering a sense of community pride.

The initiative will be rolled out by the City of South Pasadena and Chamber of Commerce. It introduces self-led walking tours to highlight various elements of life in South Pasadena. The first launches will include the “Around the World in South Pasadena,” and a “Library Art” tour.
The Experience South Pasadena program is designed to encourage residents and visitors to shop local. The program aims to stimulate economic growth, strengthen the local economy, and cultivate a vibrant community spirit. The first two trails will run from June 1, 2023 through July 31, 2023.
Following the first two launches, the City and Chamber will launch a new program every eight weeks with new themes.
The first trail of the Experience South Pasadena program, “Around the World in South Pasadena,” will take participants on a journey through the diverse culinary delights, handmade crafts, and cultural experiences that can be found within the city. Participants could access the tour in a few ways:
- Visit southpasadenaca.gov or southpasadena.net and find the tour on the City’s or Chamber of Commerce’s website;
- Pick up a brochure at City Hall, Library, or the South Pasadena Senior Center; or
- Scan the QR code at each participating business.
Participants will be able to fill out their printed brochures or complete the trail virtually to be entered into a raffle to win a grand prize at the end of the trail. Hard copy 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 am – 6:00 pm. Participants are also encouraged to share their experiences on social media using the hashtag #
