The Early Bird gets the deals:
Don’t miss Belfast’s biggest Annual Downtown-wide sale!

Always the first Saturday in December. You’ll find deep discounts and promotions from retail shops and restaurants throughout Belfast just in time for the holiday season.

Stay for the day and come to the Belfast Tree Lighting (held the same day as the sale) in Post Office Square, where the community will gather for cocoa, caroling, and a visit from Santa before lighting the town Christmas tree.

Throughout the year, Belfast businesses come together periodically to offer downtown-wide deals and discounts that make shopping local easy and fun for everyone. Keep informed on more sales coordinated by Our Town Belfast by following us on Facebook and subscribing to our e-newsletter.

This year, Buoy Local® is offering shoppers 5x rewards (or 5%) back for each purchase made with participating Buoy Local Retailers. Thank you to Buoy Local for their generous support of this event!
The Buoy Local® Card makes it easy to give the gift of local and support our communities by being accepted only at participating locally owned shops, restaurants and businesses across Maine.
