Visit downtown Onancock this holidays season to take advantage of special shopping and dining hours, offerings and events.

On Fab Fridays – Dec. 10 & 17 – participating merchants will remain open until 7 p.m. and offer:

  • special deals on food, drinks, clothing and gifts and pop-up stores
  • wine and cheese tasting
  • refreshments
  • music, entertainment and more

Fab Fridays is a wonderful way to have Friday night fun and support the Shore’s businesses and artisan community while finding unique holiday gifts that aren’t available online. Enjoy the holiday lights and decorations while strolling through the downtown of this historic small town, which was chartered in 1680.

Look for the bell-shaped flyers in the windows of participating businesses. Details found on individual merchants’ websites and Facebook pages.
