Downtown St. Catharines Do More in the Core

If you’re ready to do more downtown, you’ll want to stay up to date on our Downtown Deals. Shop, dine and play for less with these great offers and savings that are ready to redeem and refreshed monthly.

The core is the place to celebrate – just check out our full slate of events. Ghost walks, annual festivals and seasonal celebrations liven up our parks, streets and Market Square all year.

The St. Catharines Downtown Association invites everyone to do more in the core. We have resources for our more than 500 member businesses in the Business Improvement Area (BIA), and work to improve and beautify our city centre and to spread the word about our vibrant and varied downtown.
