Love Downtown Flagstaff 7 Day Challenge!

Category: Downtown Blog

Help us support and celebrate our wonderful small businesses in Downtown Flagstaff during the “Love Downtown Flagstaff” 7 day challenge! We are giving you 7 different ways to support our downtown businesses starting May 1st-May 7th. During this week, we ask that you dine at one of the many outdoor patios, stop by your favorite downtown retailer, or even try somewhere you haven’t been to in Downtown Flagstaff. The options are endless! In addition, that week is filled with many special days such as teacher appreciation day, Cinco De Mayo, National Nurses day, and MORE! 

PLUS! If you like, comment, and tag which business you supported on any of our #LOVEDTFLG posts, you will be entered for the chance to win some amazing prizes! Here’s what you can look forward to that week: 

Day 1: Attend Yoga on the Lawn and Grab Breakfast Downtown

Meet us Saturday, May 1st at 9am in front of the County Courthouse Lawn (219 E. Cherry Ave) for Yoga on the Lawn “Physical Distancing Style” with the amazing Holly White! 

After this yoga practice, you’ve definitely earned a hearty breakfast. There are so many amazing options to choose from! You can see a full list of breakfast options in Downtown Flagstaff by clicking HERE.

Day 5: Celebrate Cinco De Mayo and Happy Hour Downtown

Don’t miss out on celebrating Cinco De Mayo at one of your favorite restaurants downtown! There are so many locations to enjoy downtown, but as a starting point, check out Alejandro’s Mexican Food! Their new location at Heritage Square is officially open. OR grab a margarita at Bandoleros 66! They are celebrating “Cinco de weeko” with half off margaritas! 


Day 6: Recognize our Health Hero’s for National Nurses Day

There are so many wonderful health heros to show our gratitude for! One gift idea is this funny nurses mug from Black Hound Gallerie which is located inside the Old Town Shops. OR another amazing gift idea would be to brighten their day with a bouquet from Sutcliffe Floral. PLUS! You can have the flowers delivered. You can’t go wrong with either option!
