Get ready to enjoy shopping, dine on delicious cuisine, and support the heartbeat of our Evansville community on Small Business Saturday. This special day is all about celebrating and championing the local businesses that make Downtown Evansville thrive.

Supporting Our Neighbors

Did you know that according to Forbes, a small business is defined as one that employs fewer than 500 individuals? In the United States, there are nearly 28 million small businesses, collectively employing over 50% of the American workforce. When you choose to shop, dine, and invest your money locally, you're not simply contributing to the bottom line of a billionaire CEO. Instead, you're directly impacting the lives of your friends and neighbors—business owners and their dedicated employees.

Your support helps them pay their mortgages, put food on their tables, and enable their children to pursue their dreams. By supporting local businesses, you become an integral part of the fabric of your community, and there's nothing quite as gratifying as knowing you've played a role in improving the lives of those around you.
