Just South of Pasadena is a Small Town – South Pasadena
Visit our historic Mission Street – home to an eclectic mix of unique boutiques. And Fair Oaks Ave. is part of the original Route 66. Here you’ll find a nostalgic soda fountain right alongside trendy cafes, shops and stops.
Great Schools Mean Business Here
The South Pasadena Unified School District’s schools are repeatedly ranked among the best in California. Great schools attract great people who like to live, work and play in their own back yard. And in 2008 we built a State-of-the-art track and field at the High School.
The Arts are Alive in SouthPas
For world-class theatre in an intimate venue, visit the Fremont Centre Theatre. The California Art Club started here 100-years ago, and today visual arts come to life at our annual Plein Air Paint-out, on our gallery walls. In May it’s the Eclectic Music Festival, and don’t miss the summertime Concerts-in-the-Park, or the Restoration Concert Series, benefiting the public library.
Check out our Fourth of July Parade, known as the Festival of Balloons! And every New Years Day for over a century we’ve had a float in the world-famous Tournament of Roses Parade. For fresh, California-grown healthy foods, come every Thursday night to the South Pasadena Certified Farmer’s Market.
