Celebrate Downcity: Saturday, November 25th

Kick off the holiday season by spending Small Business Saturday downtown! InDowncity is hosting its annual event, the Celebrate Downcity block party, on Saturday, November 25th, from noon to 4 PM. Start shopping for everyone on your list at locally owned businesses on Westminster Street, and enjoy special promotions throughout the afternoon! You’ll find a wide range of fantastic gifts, books, vintage items, and more in shops including Craftland, Homestyle, Modern Love, Symposium Books, ENO Fine Wines, The Vault Collective, Civil, and Clover.

Head to Grant’s Block on the corner of Westminster and Union streets to meet up with Santa. He’ll hand out free Shop Small tote bags (filled with prizes) while supplies last, and he’ll pose for a complimentary Polaroid photo with you too! Warm up with hot drinks and pastries from Bolt Coffee and Small Point Cafe, and refuel with food from local favorite trucks, Open Season and Championship Melt. Your kids can participate in hosted arts and crafts activities like printing their own wrapping paper, making holiday crowns, and more.

Look for updates on Facebook before the big event!
