Shoptoberfest To Offer Shopping And Fall Fun


For the third year, Shoptoberfest will come to the Park Plaza shopping center in October, inviting area residents to enjoy entertainment, a costume contest for kids and dogs, and items from more than 60 exhibitors. This year’s event is set for October 22 from 11:00am to 3:00pm.

“It is a great event to bring the community together with our businesses and nonprofits to build face-to-face relationships,” said Greater Severna Park and Arnold Chamber of Commerce CEO Liz League, whose organization plans the event. “It is a ‘shop local’ event that also educates the community on the importance of supporting local businesses as they create jobs, provide desired goods and services, and keep their tax dollars local to support community initiatives.”

This year’s gold sponsors are SERVPRO of Annapolis/Severna Park and the Jing Ying Institute of Kung Fu & Tai Chi. Both businesses will donate $500 to charities of their choice.

“We do have new businesses this year, including Ace Handyman Services, and we expect this to be a sold-out event with over 60 exhibitors,” League said.

The exhibitors will have a Halloween vibe at their tables with treats and giveaways.

Shoptoberfest is free and fun for people of all ages. The kids costume contest will be held at 1:00pm, and the dog costume contest is scheduled for 1:30pm.
