Small Business Saturday & Indies First Day
Today, November 25, is Small Business Saturday 2017! Support your local, independent businesses with your shopping dollars so that they continue to support our community.
Of course, Fairhaven will be celebrating Small Business Saturday alongside the second day of the Fairhaven Winter Festival this year with Father Christmas visiting, Carriage Rides, a Holiday Market, the Holiday O Open House, Street-Corner Musicians, and the annual Tree Lighting.

In addition to the many Art Walk features, local businesses may be offering other "small business" events. For example, Village Books will be celebrating Indies First today (a year-round campaign in support, specifically, of independent bookstores on Small Business Saturday), and they will be hosting two celebrated local authors to sign copies of their books and talk about their favorite reads this season. Clete Barrett Smith, author of the middle grade series, Aliens on Vacation and a new young adult novel, Mr. 60% will be sign from noon to 2pm. And Craig Romano will sign Urban Trails Bellingham from 2 to 4pm.
