The Importance of Supporting Local Businesses

We love a win-win! At the SummerNight Downtown Artwalk, you can score cool new pieces and fill up with great eats. You also have a chance to reinvigorate the lifeblood of local businesses. After an unprecedented 2020, we all can do our part to look after the fabric of our community: local restaurants and shops.

Each time you buy from a small business, that money goes back into our town. So, your dollars stretch farther when you spend them locally. And now, you have the perfect opportunity to make a big impact!
