Black Friday on Broadway (BFOB)

BFOB is a collaboration between NEON and the West Broadway Business

& Area Coalition (WBC). It encourages the community to support entrepreneurs on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday - while promoting holiday shopping in the richly diverse business district of North Minneapolis. BFOB is also an opportunity for small businesses to meet and greet neighbors, promote their businesses and test the viability of their products and services. 


Over 30+ small businesses take part in BFOB each year, selling products and services at NEON, which is transformed into a holiday pop-up shop. This unique shopping opportunity benefits our collective goal to build wealth while supporting economic development initiatives within the communities we serve. 

BFOB 2020: dates for 2020 are

  • Friday, November 27th

  • Saturday, November 28th

Vendor applications for 2020 BFOB will become available in April and will be posted here. Applications will be due by August 1st. It is encouraged for vendors to participate both days if possible.
