Get ready for one, or all, of the first three Fridays (7th, 14th & 21st) in December 2018 from 6:00-9:00pm. All you have to do is keep your calendar open, then call your friends to make plans for a great night of shopping in Newburyport! Get ready to enjoy live entertainment, fabulous shopping, amazing dining, and the spirit of the holidays of course, in the beautifully festive Tannery Historic Marketplace in downtown Newburyport.
Newburyport-area residents seeking the ultimate holiday shopping experience tend to bypass the malls in favor of Invitation Nights – a series of shop-local events in which downtown retailers stay open late to spread holiday cheer by offering discounts and light refreshments. These Invitation Nights draw spirited crowds, as shoppers enjoy all the shopping, dining, and live action that the downtown area has to offer.
Beautiful and festive holiday decorations will line the streets downtown from Merrimac Place and Horton’s Yard to the Tannery, including the main thoroughfares of State Street and Pleasant Street. You’re likely to see plenty of tired holiday-shopping enthusiasts taking a break in Market Square while resting on the benches ringing the city’s giant Christmas tree.
You can start making your holiday gift list now, but make sure to shop locally in historic downtown Newburyport one of the first three Fridays in December. We hope to see you there, but no matter what we wish you all a happy holiday season!
