Sip & Shop

Our spring and fall Sip & Shop events have been a hit of the downtown since beginning in 2017. Whether it’s a Girls Night Out or Date Night Fun, there is something for all on this adventure through the downtown. All proceeds from these events benefit our downtown beautification efforts through flowers, holiday décor, or other projects to enhance our downtown. Thank you for your continued support!
