Eastern Market Main Street kicks off its Holly Days season on Saturday, November 24 — also known as Small Business Saturday.
On that day, over 30 of the businesses inside the Capitol Hill historic corridor will begin celebrating the holidays with promotions intended to foster local shopping and encourage investment in the local economy.
Eastern Market Main Street will be set up outside the Eastern Market Metro station on Nov. 24, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. The first 200 shoppers to visit will receive a Small Business Saturday goody bag and free hot chocolate will be available throughout the event.
“We hope that by highlighting the variety and unique aspects of our own corridor, we will increase awareness of the importance of investing in your local economy and provide tangible support to our amazing businesses that extends beyond the holiday season,” said Madeleine Odendahl, executive director of EMMS.
The Holly Days is a 37-day extravaganza of events, festivities, restaurant specials and merchandise sales. Shops will be decorated with wreaths and garland, accenting the singular mix of the historic with the modern that makes the neighborhood uniquely distinctive.
The Holly Days celebration continues until December 31. If time is running out on your holiday shopping, get some ideas at the The Holly Days Last Minute Gift Guide.
