  • Mark your calendar for Saturday, December TBD 2024 for the BIGGEST shopping day of the year! If you’ve ever been to Midnight Madness in St. Michaels, you’ll definitely be back for this year’s 23rd annual event.
  • Great shops will be open ’til Midnight with refreshments and snacks, and special sales for that day and evening. The Town will be festively decorated for the season, and Carolers stroll the streets. You may even meet Santa…
  • Each year, the town of St Michaels is transformed into a picture perfect holiday postcard, the shops, restaurants and B&B’s are decorated with stunning greenery, lights and festive cheer. The holiday spirit is felt throughout town, which makes coming to St Michaels during the holiday season a special experience, year after year, and provides a wonderful backdrop to shop for the holidays.

Midnight Madness  is a reminder of how important the small-business sector is to our economy and why it’s so important to “Shop Local” all year round. The movement to “Shop Local”, especially during the holidays, is needed to help support the locally owned small businesses that create jobs, boost the economy and preserve our hometown businesses.
