Why not make a trip to Block Island for the 29th Annual Christmas Shopping Stroll. This event is held every year on Thanksgiving weekend, this year November 29 – December 1, 2019, and becomes more popular with visitors and Island businesses. The Stroll begins Friday through Sunday with local retailers opening their shops, from 10 am – 5 pm, to offer discounts for all Shopping Strollers.

On Saturday the 15th Annual 5K Turkey Trot will begin at the Fred Benson Town Beach at noon. Walk or run off your holiday meal.  Application available on our web site below. What is a Christmas Shopping Stroll? It is a chance to visit all of your favorite Island retail shops, take advantage of incredible sales, and possibly win one of the many fabulous raffle prizes.

All shopping strollers must first pick up an entry form at the Chamber of Commerce office, at the ferry landing, between 10 am and 3 PM, Friday or Saturday. After you receive the entry form you must visit each shop listed on the form and have it stamped by the shop owner or employee to be eligible. Once you have bingo you may return the completed form to the Chamber office. Be sure to check the days and hours of each shop so you do not miss them. The raffle drawing will take place on Sunday afternoon, December 1, at 1 PM, at the Chamber office. Participants do not need to be present to win! For further information contact the Block Island Chamber of Commerce at (401) 466-2474.
