NEON News:


Black Friday on Broadway

NEON received some amazing press for this year's Black Friday on Broadway, the annual holiday market we organize in partnership with the West Broadway Business & Area Coalition. 

KARE 11's Jennifer Austin stopped by during set-up to share the story.

Jennifer Books, columnist for The Star Tribune, talked with some of this year's vendors. She interviewed NEON client Strive Publishing (pictured above) and Acronym Village.
