was on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th November

sponsored by Historic Hayesville Inc.

Explore Hayesville and shop local year round.

 Small businesses are more than just local places! They are OUR places and their success is OUR community's success.

Small Business Saturday 2017 was the first year that Historic Hayesville Inc sponsored the event and encouraged our small businesses to participate. It was so successful that following years saw many more businesses participating despite challenges.

The Small Business Weekend events included a Black Friday event and a Saturday evening concert in the Beal Center - a great way to end a shopping day./span>

 Weekend activities shown below were enjoyed by all.




Shoppers began by visiting the Centennial Exhibit on Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to collect a shopping bag (while supplies last) with a participant map, special offerings and information from participating businesses and other goodies.

Many will remember the gift baskets from previous years – a firm favorite with shoppers. Various participant businesses had the tickets.  Visitors to one such business collected ONE ticket, and purchases received FIVE tickets. Gift basket values vary but are well over $100.




The prize drawing was on December 10th at the Christmas Parade downtown.
