Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance welcomes you to our historic shopping district where you can shop for everyone on your list! You won’t find big box stores, long lines at the register, or mass-produced items in Downtown Harrisonburg. Instead, our streets are lined with charming local, independent stores ranging from art and clothing to outdoor recreation. This guide highlights some of the great gifts you’ll find downtown, but with over 40 unique retailers, we encourage you to visit and experience downtown shopping for yourself!
Why shop small? You’ll discover quality, one-of-kind, artisan items that you won’t find anywhere else. You’ll receive personalized attention from small business owners and employees who are knowledgeable about the products they sell. Most importantly, you’ll make a significant impact on our community by investing your money locally. By shopping small, you’re investing in our schools, roads, and other services we use daily.
