This Saturday, Nov. 28, is Small Business Saturday, a national initiative to shop local and break away from large box stores.
Originally created by American Express in response to the 2010 recession, Small Business Saturday is held the Saturday after Thanksgiving to encourage people to “shop small” and bring more holiday shopping to small businesses.
With COVID-19 restrictions and fears limiting sales for many small business, this year’s Small Business Saturday is especially important to the bottom line of the tens of thousands of small businesses in the District.
Here are some great online resources to aide your local participation in Small Business Saturday:
- Downtown Holiday Market
- Holidays in Georgetown
- Tenley WinterFest
- The Holly Days by the Eastern Market Main Street
- Victura Park at the Kennedy Center
