Support Small Business Saturday by shopping local

The month of November brings along the celebration of Small Business Saturday in the Morgantown community. Small businesses have been a part of retail communities for years, originally being the primary form of shopping before large corporations and retail companies began to grow. The reason small businesses are so important for communities is the opportunities they provide to entrepreneurs and community neighborhoods. Small businesses create meaningful jobs that create greater job satisfaction and foster a local economy that keeps money close to the community.

Nov. 26 is recognized as Small Business Saturday. Join the Morgantown community for a collection of events on this day.

Holiday Vintage Market with Mainstreet Morgantown

Join Mainstreet Morgantown on Nov. 26 to celebrate Small Business Saturday with a holiday vintage market, organized by Morgantown Art Party. The event will feature free holiday cookies and s’mores with Santa. The event will provide the opportunity for children to meet Santa at the downtown Ward Building. Downtown Morgantown will be filled with food trucks and live music so come downtown and enjoy free parking and community fun.

Morgantown Parking Authority will be offering free street and lot parking downtown from Nov. 23-27.

Moonlight Market

The Moonlight Market began its journey in September when the first Moonlight Market gathered crowds under the Downtown Market Plaza. The Moonlight Market was created by local artist, Pascha Adamo, as an opportunity to bring the public to downtown Morgantown in celebration of local artists. The first event was a wonderful success, filling the night with music and chatter of excited shoppers/vendors.

Taking place from 3-9 p.m. Nov. 26, join the creative community on Spruce Street to browse a variety of local artists. The event will have live music, food vendors and DIY crafts for the public to enjoy.
