Black Friday on Broadway (BFOB)


BFOB is a collaboration between NEON and the West Broadway Business

& Area Coalition (WBC). It's a 2-day shopping experience that encourages the community to support entrepreneurs on 

Black Friday and Small Business Saturday. While shopping with 30 local small businesses on West Broadway, you will find the latest fashion, art, beauty products and more! It’s the perfect place to #shoplocal and keep your dollar within the community when shopping for gifts for the whole family. BFOB is also an opportunity for small businesses to promote their businesses and test the viability of their products and services. 

In light of the recent surge in Covid cases and Executive Order 20-99, we, unfortunately, have canceled the in-person portion of this year's BFOB.


While we cannot meet in person, the opportunity to shop BFOB vendors will still be possible via the new website #BFOB2020 website. Browse all our BFOB vendors and shop from them directly through the rest of the holiday season!
