The Holidays Hit Downtown Waukegan

During this season of giving we want to GIVE THANKS for all of your continued support of Waukegan Main Street and the businesses in our Main Street Business.  Small Business Saturday on November 26th was a resounding success with great weather, registers ringing and an all-around festive atmosphere including Santa at the Genesee Theatre and the tree lighting in Jack Benny Plaza.  If you didn’t have the opportunity to shop local on Small Business Saturday remember that the boutiques, shops and restaurants remain the mainstays for holiday giving!


You have another big opportunity to enjoy holiday cheer in our Arts & Entertainment District on Saturday, December 17th with the annual HolidayWauk – December ArtWauk!  This fun event  offers free and inexpensive activities for the whole family, so bundle up, bring your camera and head downtown!  Here’s a smattering of the offerings:

We look forward to seeing you downtown and hope your holidays and the New Year are bright and happy!
