Downtown Holiday Market

The Grass Valley Downtown Association presents the Downtown Holiday Market from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. this Saturday, November 9, in beautiful historic downtown Grass Valley.

The Downtown Holiday Market (formerly known 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.

What’s unique about shopping downtown is the atmosphere in a historic district.  You get a sense of the history, and the personal small town touches.  

Tangible sights and smells accompany the warmth of each merchant’s carefully curated shop, restaurant or tasting room.

There is also the experience of seeing what is new in downtown.  Several new businesses have opened, or are on the precipice of opening in time for our holiday events Cornish Christmas and the WinterFest daytime family event that culminates in a town tree lighting event with our Cornish Choir.

Merchants will be joining in the festivities with treats in store, music and holiday specials!
