Does Your Town Have a Local Shopping Event?

In Oakland, CA, Plaid Friday was created by two local galleries as an independent business alternative to the big box store-dominated Black Friday. Plaid Friday is designed to help raise awareness about shopping local and supporting the local economy. Does your town have a local shopping event like this, such as a craft fair, art sale, or open gallery event? If so, tell me about it in the comments!

I live near Camden, Maine and they have an annual celebration called "Christmas by the Sea" that has some neat events like a parade of lights, concerts, etc, but really the draw is all the awesome sales in the shops.

I am from Oakland, and didn't know about this! Good to know for next year.
