Saturday, November 27 is a celebration of how much we love and appreciate our small businesses!  Join us for Shop Small Saturday 2021 starring our 70+ awesome one-of-a-kind shops, restaurants, galleries and salons.  Our small business owners and employees can’t wait to make your holiday the best ever.

Come to the kick off for this fun filled day of shopping and dining in OEC at 10 AM at the Welcome Center (8267 Main Street).  While there, COME GET YOUR OEC BUCKS!  For the third year Ellicott City Partnership is giving out the popular OEC Bucks, valued at $15.  Spend your bucks at any of our participating businesses** Saturday, November 27 through Sunday, December 12, no minimum purchase required. 

You’ll need to register HERE prior to collecting your bucks.  Beat the rush – register now and pick up in advance of our favorite shopping day.  Bucks pick up happens at the Welcome Center Thursdays through Sundays 10 AM – 5 PM.  Get yours while supplies last!

Also kicking off this weekend, the serendipitous return of the Holiday Train Walk!  Not yet able to return to their forever home at Fire Station #2, the HCFD & Friends volunteers have brought their wonderland magic to 9 Main Street windows!  Each has its own theme and virtual scavenger hunt.  Find the map and details HERE.

While you’re strolling, take note of how we’ve decked out our halls – the Holiday Window Contest starts today!  Vote for you favorite and be entered to win a $50 OEC Gift Certificate to the OEC business of your choice.  Cast your vote HERE.

On Shop Small Saturday, catch the holiday spirit, shop till you almost drop, then reward yourself with the perfect end of day gastro treat and libation.

Thanks for supporting our small businesses!
