A one-of-a-kind holiday shopping extravaganza across downtown Portland, Maine!

Do you love Portland? Are you a shopaholic? Do you appreciate good discounts at your favorite downtown storefronts? Then this near-month-long event is for you!

The 2022 festivities launch with the Merry Madness Kickoff Party on Thursday, December 8th at the beautiful & historic U.S. Custom House. More than 40 participating downtown retailers stay open late — until 10 p.m. !! — to offer Merry Madness shoppers exclusive specials (& maybe even some sips or nibbles) as they shop their way around downtown.

But wait! The shopping doesn’t end there. . .

Thanks to the now virtual Merry Madness Passport (made available through the Scavify), exclusive offers at 70+ participating downtown retailers (40+ open until 10 p.m. December 8th ONLY) will be active December 8th – December 31st.
