“What an incredible first weekend of Shop the Village! I am completely lost for words at how our neighborhood showed up to support their local businesses this weekend!
Thank you to everyone who came out and made our event such a success! Thank you to our sponsors who made our dream a reality, Thank you to our volunteers who were incredible shop the village ambassadors working long hours to get this built each day!
Thank you to every retailer, performer, vendor & business in the west village for showing up the way our community knows how to!
Due to incredible success we are doubling the custom built lawn for our second weekend. We also still need more volunteers – particularly adults who can help run parts of the events. #volunteering #volunteernyc
We have some incredible activities lined up for next weekend – Boisson lawn takeover part 2 following an absolutely amazing first event! Ron Thurston @rthurstonintermixny-com is joining us for a RETAIL PRIDE live networking event on Saturday, Marco Santini will be live building our interactive artwork that you all left love notes for this weekend, retailers & restaurants will be running even more events & activities along with all our amazing performers and of course… Puppercup, woofbowl and dogs of course! Wow…!
It’s not too late to get involved, we are making next weekend even better so come and help, sponsor, run an event, connect with us or volunteer!” @emma-taylorreiss-com
