Several upcoming events give you additional options to support local merchants. This Saturday, November 9th is the Grass Valley Holiday Market.
“It is fantastic to work with promoting the downtown merchants in Grass Valley,” said Marni Marshall, Grass Valley Downtown Association Director. When asked what’s unique about shopping downtown she explained, “it’s the atmosphere in a historic district. You get a sense of the history, and the personal small town touches. There is also the experience of seeing what is new in downtown. The Downtown Holiday Market (formerly knows as Holiday Open House) is a kick-off to the holiday shopping season. Participating merchants will have a variety of specials, such as door prizes, raffle prizes, sales, entertainment, and pop-up shops within shops. It encourages people to shop local and see what your downtown merchants have to offer for gifts and experiences. It’s a fun way to spend the day with friends and family.”
And don’t forget the upcoming events Nevada City Victorian Christmas, Nevada City Craft Fair and more, we’ve put together a short list of a few suggestions, check it out on our website under Holiday Events.
Let’s Go Out Tonight
Spread the word
Use social media and your network of people to share that Nevada City & Grass Valley are open and welcoming. There has been a lot of publicity about the power shutoffs, fires and a wage of general bah humbug for the last month. I don’t know about you, but we’re ready for some good news! With that in mind, Nevada City and Grass Valley are all powered up and businesses are open and would love to see you. It’s important to remind not only tourists and the media in general, but the locals, that we’re a tourist community that welcomes folks to come to town and support businesses, so yes, the power outages have impacted many, but here at the Outside Inn and Inn Town Campground we are open year round (including power outages), so let’s all remind folks that we’re an awesome place to visit! For those of you online, you can share this blog post, or tag Visit Nevada City on Instagram using #VisitNevadaCity to remind and show folks all the amazing things happening in our area (and it can be in Grass Valley too!).
