Eventbrite - Merry Madness

Get ready for an unforgettable night of shopping and merriment with your friends — Merry Madness takes over downtown Thursday, December 7th! Please note: This event is 21+ and rain or shine.

Portland House of Music & Events will once again host our Merry Madness Kickoff Party. On event night, you can swing by anytime between 4:00pm and 6:30pm to receive star treatment and some fabulous perks including:

  • A “red carpet” welcome — complete with professional photography
  • A commemorative Merry Madness reusable shopping bag
  • A commemorative Merry Madness stemless wine glass (and one complimentary pour of wine)
  • A Merry Madness “Snacks To Go” bag filled with sweet and savory treats
  • Live music courtesy of The Nightcaps and Viva & The Reinforcements
  • Plus: When you order your tickets online, you’ll be automatically entered to win some awesome raffle prizes!

Once you have your official glass, get ready to shop ’til you drop at our many fabulous participating locations. The shops will stay open until 10:00pm and you can follow the map to find holiday treasures for everyone on your list. Adding to the fun: your Merry Madness glass will get you free beverages and nibbles throughout the evening. Bliss!

To sweeten the deal even more, a portion of all Merry Madness ticket sales will benefit the Portland Press Herald Toy Fund, a wonderful charity that helps make the holidays shine brighter for children all over Maine.

For up-to-the-minute Merry Madness updates, RSVP on our Facebook Event page.
