Trick-or-Treat on 3rd Street

The McMinnville Downtown Association prides itself on providing a safe and easy environment to celebrate Halloween. All ages dress up in costume and head for 3rd Street to walk door-to-door collecting goodies from businesses.

Small Business Saturday on 3rd Street

First there was Black Friday, then Cyber Monday, now there is Small Business Saturday. Small Business Saturday is the day to celebrate the Shop Small movement to drive shoppers to local merchants in downtown McMinnville.

Santa’s Parade & Tree Lighting on 3rd Street

Start the holiday off right with the McMinnville Downtown Association’s annual Holiday Parade and Tree Lighting Festival in downtown McMinnville! We begin with an old-fashioned starlight parade under 3rd Street’s twinkle-lit trees. The parade kicks off at 4:30 p.m. and the annual tree lighting follows immediately afterward in front of the Cozine House, 105 NE 3rd St.  Come early to take advantage of holiday sales and shop local for family and friends on your list. Rumor has it, Santa pays a visit every year, but only if you’re on the nice list.

McMinnville Holiday Stroll

Every season is perfect on 3rd Street, but there’s something extra special about the holiday season. Maybe it’s the idea of shopping entirely local for holiday gifts, sipping on hot cocoa as you admire the beautifully crafted wreaths on business’ storefronts or maybe it’s the magical twinkly lights strung up and down Third Street.  Whatever it is, you’re invited to come downtown for McMinnville’s annual Holiday Stroll to experience it for yourself. Celebrate and enjoy an old-fashioned Christmas in McMinnville.
