Challenge

Find the local Small Business Saturday event in your community.

Communities and organizations across Montana are hosting Small Business Saturday events.  Many of these events include activities and prizes. Find the one in your community today.

The SBA's Montana District is encouraging shoppers to support local small businesses during the holiday season. Held the day after “Black Friday,” November 26 marks the 13th annual Small Business Saturday, created to help small businesses capture a larger piece of the critical holiday season consumer spending, helping small business owners get more customers through their doors.

Shopping small and making a holiday purchase at a small business on Small Business Saturday is a way to show support for the small businesses that create jobs, boost the economy, enrich our neighborhoods, and help keep our local communities vibrant.

While you are supporting your local small businesses for Small Business Saturday, dine small, too -- visit your local eateries and independent restaurants. We encourage small businesses to leverage Small Business Saturday to help drive more traffic to their businesses – whether through their doors or to their e-commerce site during the holiday shopping season and throughout the year.
