This November, we are celebrating our community in a big way. Our local businesses have shown resilience, adaptability, creativity, and compassion throughout this challenging year. It is time for us to put a spotlight on each of them.
We are asking our community members to support local in November by shopping, writing reviews, following on social media, and spreading kindness to those who have been putting effort into keeping their doors open for you.
Are You In?
Here’s how you can join in on the action. Each day, we will be celebrating a different industry within our community. We simply ask that you take one action a week to make your favorite business owners do a happy dance. We are asking for everything from referrals, to testimonials, to purchasing from local shops.
Get Your Free KTBA Bag!
On Sunday, November 1, we will be giving away 300 reusable KTBA shopping bags filled with goodies from our members! Stop by the Kensington Library Park between 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. to get yours.
Please wear a mask and practice social distancing.
What’s In It For You?
We are so glad you asked! Not only are you producing big smiles all over our neighborhood with your support and helping our local businesses thrive in an uncertain time—you can also win one of fourteen $25 gift cards.
We are giving away $25 gift cards to all of our member restaurants and bars including Burger Lounge, Ken Cafe, The Haven, cucina SORELLA, Ponce’s, Moosie’s, Pappalecco, Village Vino, and Kensington Brewing Co.
