Not The End, But The Beginning!

It’s that time of year again...students are moving out of their dorms, summer plans are being made, and the weather is warming up...most days. That’s right, it’s graduation time! If you are coming into town for graduation or you are a graduate and want to know what to do this weekend to celebrate, we are here with a Guide to Graduation: Downtown Edition!

Looking for the Perfect Gift for Your Grad? Look no more!

Downtown Flagstaff has a variety of stores that offer unique gifts for everyone. Mountain Sports is offering a FREE small Patagonia Black Hole Cube with purchase of any Patagonia Black Hole Duffel. Pop into Bright Side Bookshop which has a brilliant selection of books to celebrate college graduation. Head over to Flagstaff General Store for some souvenirs, like a comfy Flagstaff, Arizona t-shirt. Or check out Black Hound Gallerie for funny gag gifts. Take the scent of Flagstaff home with you in the form of a candle from Salt + Peak. No matter what your grad is interested in, downtown has the gift for them!

Celebrate with Food and Drinks!

The best way to celebrate any achievement is with good company, and even better food and drinks. With over 50 restaurants, Downtown Flagstaff is the ideal destination for all things food, coffee, and drink related. Have a mimosa before the ceremony at Rendezvous, indulge in a sweet at The Sweet Shop with an NAU graduation carmel apple, and celebrate with amazing food at any downtown restaurant.

Let’s Get This Party Started!

Graduation is a weekend long affair, and with that comes many opportunities to celebrate! What better place than Downtown to have a drink and let loose after graduation. Many bars are hosting graduation parties that will start Friday and last until Sunday morning! Check out the Graduation party at Majerle’s Sports Grill with DJ Bear Cole Friday Night! Or Celebrate with The McMillan’s “Ain’t No Finals Party” on Friday or their “Books Closed Party” Saturday! Collins Irish Pub and The Market Bar & Kitchen both are hosting huge graduation parties all weekend! You can throw your boots on and show your parents how you two step over at Lumberyard on Friday and Saturday!

Live it up this weekend graduates and celebrate with all of us here at Downtown Flagstaff! Relive your favorite memories downtown...your favorite coffee shop to study at, favorite restaurant you always go to with friends, or visit one your Saturday night hang out one last time! Take in the views of downtown from the Zane Grey balcony at The Weatherford, Flag Terroir, or Rendezvous! Take photos in front of your favorite mural or in front of The Hotel Monte Vista!

 Congratulations Class of 2019! We can’t wait to see all you graduates around downtown with family and friends celebrating the end of one chapter, and the beginning of another. Cheers!
