VIRTUAL Buy Local Fair

Sunday, May 17, 2020

The Louisville Independent Business Alliance (LIBA) has hosted the Buy Local Fair for over 10 years. Usually at this time of year, thousands of people would attend this special shopping event at the Louisville Water Tower Park. But as we all know, we can’t be doing that! This year we've got a special virtual edition.

Hosted online through LIBA’s Facebook page and the organization’s website, the event combines showcases, giveaways and gift cards galore.

Citizens can help their favorites get through the crisis, and they can look forward to spending the gift cards as businesses reopen (or immediately online).

“We’re all finding new ways to connect virtually and to make a difference in our community,” said Jennifer Rubenstein, Director of LIBA. “This online offering builds community in a whole new way. And gift cards are so important as businesses prepare to reopen. The convenient thing about the Fair is you can find many of your favorites in one place and support them all with just one transaction.”   

Leading up to the event, daily drawings will be held from Facebook event RSVPs and winners will receive money to spend at the Fair. LIBA will also be using Facebook Lives to showcase local businesses in the days leading up to the event, from coffee art to jewelry design.

The event launches at 12 noon on Sunday, May 17th with a special address from Mayor Fischer, and continues for 24 hours, closing at 12 noon on Monday.

LIBA will be drawing for special prizes throughout the day. For every $25 someone spends, they'll be entered to win various prize baskets and gift cards.
