Safe Summer Shopping at Red Bank Sidewalk Sale

Red Bank RiverCenter (RiverCenter), in conjunction with Red Bank retailers and shop owners, is thrilled to announce that the 66th year of the Red Bank Summer Sidewalk Sale will once again set up streetside in the town’s vibrant downtown district!

A staple of the summer season, the event invites the savviest of shoppers to enjoy the season’s best deals and most fashionable finds from Red Bank’s beloved retail businesses in a safe outdoor setting. Beginning Friday, August 28 and continuing through Sunday, August 30, the Sidewalk Sale will feature an impressive array of local retailers and purveyors, including handcrafted gourmet stores, small boutiques and antique shops to big-name retailers.

After you finish up your shopping, take a break at one of Red Bank’s many restaurants and eateries. Experience the first-ever Broadwalk Plaza on Broad Street from 4 p.m. Thursday to 10 p.m. Sunday! Each week Red Bank shuts down Broad Street, allowing retail shops to spread out and restaurants to provide seating in a beautiful outdoor plaza. Shoppers and diners can experience their favorite dishes and drinks in a charming outdoor setting with string lights hanging across Broad Street, elegant uplighting, roped off seating and chic umbrellas providing shade.

“Red Bank RiverCenter is excited to present this annual outdoor shopping tradition the last weekend of August 2020,” Laura Kirkpatrick, RiverCenter Executive Director said. “The in-person, spring and summer shopping seasons were delayed because of the pandemic, but our retailers have been safely welcoming customers back to town since June. They are ready to continue our time-honored bargain hunting event just a bit later in the summer season.” 

The individual businesses participating in the Sidewalk Sale may have varying store hours throughout the weekend and shoppers are encouraged to check the hours of operation for their retailers of choice.
