There are many opportunities to support local business during the busy holiday shopping season. The Downtown Bozeman Association, in conjunction with locally owned small businesses, will present a trio of upcoming events that will allow shoppers to check everything off their lists with time to spare!
First up is the annual return of Ladies’ Night on Thursday, November 16th from 5–8pm.

Enjoy the goods and services of countless participating downtown retailers and restaurants. So, grab your friends and head downtown the week before Thanksgiving for a fun holiday shopping experience. Open to all.
Following Saturday, Nov. 25th, downtown proprietors celebrate Small Business Saturday with sales and other activities. The event is dedicated to supporting small businesses on one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year. Shop small at your favorite stores and help fuel Bozeman’s local economy. Numerous small businesses welcome customers to their storefronts with varied promotions and activities.
And looking to a new month, the beloved Christmas Stroll returns to Downtown Bozeman for its 43rd annual event on Saturday, December 2nd from 4:30–7:30pm.
