Ride the Holly Jolly Trolley on Small Business Saturday!

The Greater Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce (GRCC) is encouraging everyone to shop small over the holidays by making it fun and rewarding to support our favorite local businesses. Packed with unique shops, delicious food, skilled artists, and friendly people, Ravenswood is a delightful place to explore this season for those seeking thoughtful, out-of-the-ordinary gifts. Our trolleys make multiple stops around the neighborhood, connecting you to hundreds of incredible small businesses without any stress about parking!

Three trolleys will make their way through the neighborhood from 11am – 5pm. No tickets are necessary and riders of all ages are welcome aboard. A Google map with trolley stops and info on nearby restaurants and shops is available here:
