If the annual Holiday Parade in Kennett Square last Saturday night officially ushered in the opening of the yuletide season, then the borough’s Small Business Saturday on Nov. 25 – which drew hundreds of shoppers along State Street and beyond carrying bags from independently-owned shops and boutiques -- served as a precursor to several upcoming holiday buying events in Kennett Square.

On Dec. 8 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., Kennett Collaborative will present “Tinsel on the Town,” which will showcase several borough merchants and give shoppers the opportunity to enjoy local restaurants and complete a BINGO card and be entered to win a basket of gift cards and merchandise from Kennett Square businesses.

The annual Kennett Square Holiday Village Market will be held on Dec. 2, 3, 9 and 10 at the Kennett Creamery. This new local tradition will again feature the talents of dozens of vintage artists and artisans, as well as live music, festive cocktails and food trucks. 

Throughout the season, Kennett Collaborative will present free parking at the Borough’s garage on Dec. 2-3, 9-10, 16 and 23, courtesy of Longwood Gardens.
