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. 

This year, #BFOB will take place at Sanctuary Covenant Church, on the corner of West Broadway and Aldrich. Social distancing practices will be in place to keep both customers and vendors safe. There will also be outdoor activities, safely packaged food and beverages available, as well as musical entertainment to maintain a festive and warm atmosphere.


This is a great opportunity to celebrate and engage with our local artists and entrepreneurs, as well as our greater community. We look forward to seeing you there!
