The 2018 running of the Campbell Summer Concert Series starts this week with the return of one of the crowd favorites, The Hitmen! If these concerts are one of your (excellent) summer traditions, please be aware of a couple of new policies that start this year. 

No Parking at City Hall without a Permit before 5pm
You can no longer park at City Hall before 5pm unless you have a permit. If you park there without a permit, expect to get a ticket. 

No Setups Before 2pm
Please do not setup for the concert until 2pm or later. Having towels and lawn chairs all over the Orchard City Green before 2pm interferes with the work of the grounds crew.

That's all. That's not too bad as far as rules go wasn't it? Let's thank the City of Campbell for continuing to do what's been such an awesome benefit of living in and around the City of Campbell. All credit for organizing this and keeping it going belongs to the City (which is entirely separate from what you know as Downtown Campbell). 

Let's also thank the Kaiser-Permanente for being the long time sponsor of this fun series of events....Read More


The San Jose Mercury News' 17th annual Best In Silicon Valley Reader's Choice Awards have been announced and Downtown Campbell again has a few businesses included in the list of winners. For a small downtown that has to compete with fewer resources than most other downtowns, it really means a lot to us every time one of our shops lands on a "best of" list. 

Let's congratulate the three winners in Downtown Campbell!

Bombshell Boutique

Tied for 1st place for Best Boutique in Silicon Valley

Bombshell Boutique is one of the longest running boutiques in Downtown Campbell. Only Simply Smashing has been around longer. Bombshell is particularly near and dear to Downtown Campbell because its owner, Brooke Ramirez, is highly active in the Campbell community and has organized or helped to organize countless events and activities in Downtown Campbell throughout the years. This store not only tied for best boutique in Silicon Valley, its owner helped to make Downtown Campbell the place that it is today. 

Oh, so you want to see what they offer? Take a look at the Bombshell Boutique Instagram page.

Campbell Farmers' Market

The Campbell Farmers' Market run by Urban Village needs no introduction. If you haven't been, you need to go. People visiting the US from other countries actually come to Campbell just to check out the Farmers' Market. In the past year alone the Campbell Farmers' Market has been featured in visitor guides for British Airways and a Mercedes Benz travel club.
