DETAILS: Over 30 different Georgetown businesses will be present at Independents Day, selling everything from food, to fashion, to artisan crafts, to home décor. Many of the businesses will be selling their merchandise for up to 75 percent off, so it’s a great opportunity to take advantage of all the sales!

There will also be entertainment, music, games, face-painting, and a balloon artist. Adult lemonade will be served at several locations to keep you cool and add a little day drinking to your shopping spree. You will also be able to purchase snacks like hot dogs, cotton candy, popcorn, and more. 

Check out all the participating vendors here. And make sure to hashtag #independentsdaygeorgetown in all your adorable social media pictures!
