Description

Join us for our happy hour to launch Plaid Friday Weekend (PFW)! Come get a drink on us, network, and learn about how to get the most out of PFW!

The national movement, Plaid Friday, was founded right here in Oakland. The Plaid theme represents the weaving together of Oakland's creative and diverse community of small business owners, their shops and products, to create a strong and beautiful fabric.

Plaid Friday Weekend is the more relaxing, enjoyable, and inspired shopping alternative to the big box “Black Friday” experience. It is designed to promote the many social and economic benefits of spending your time and your dollars with independently-owned businesses on the busiest shopping day of the year (and all season long). Districts and individual merchants across the Oakland are participating with lively entertainment, holiday decor, sales and extended hours, special events, artisan pop-ups, free parking, and lots of love for their shopping community.

The city-wide PFW campaign is sponsored by the City of Oakland, East Bay Express, Oakland Grown, and Townsquared. We will be providing merchants with marketing toolkits, promoting the event through a robust marketing campaign, and hosting a listing of PFW events on OaklandGrown.org.

Townsquared is a private online network where local business owners can ask questions and share information about common issues, such as permits, crime and safety, marketing, accounting, business operations, and more. If you're not a Townsquared member, you can sign-up for a free account.
