You may have noticed that we haven't been having any Second Saturday Artwalks or First Friday street entertainment events in 2018. Don't worry, they're not going away. We're just in the middle of our annual winter break for our street activities. From January through the end of March, we take a break from hosting street musicians and local artists and makers because of the colder weather, shorter days, and potential for rain outs.

First Fridays and Second Saturdays will resume in April as usual. If you're interested in participating either as a musician or as an artist/maker, please fill out one of our applications.

At last weekend's "Wig" fundraiser, many of the shops in the Courtyard in Downtown Campbell organized a raffle ad donated a portion of proceeds to fund the purchase of a real hair wig for one of the employees of Bombshell Boutique who has severe Alopecia Areata (spot baldness) and was bullied because of her disorder. We easily surpassed our target and all additional funds were donated to No Bully, an organization that promotes anti-bullying initiatives.

Here's a look at the lovely Anjolie modeling an outfit from Bombshell Boutique with her new hair!

If you haven't heard yet, there were mass layoffs throughout the Mercury News Organization and the staff of their community newspapers division was gutted. This would include the Campbell Reporter, which often helped spread news about things happening in or affecting Downtown Campbell. Small downtowns like ours rely on community engagement to remain healthy and vibrant and we will miss the Campbell Reporter and its sister publications. The hard work of their underpaid reporters and photojournalists have played an important role in helping Downtown Campbell come out of its days as a too quiet downtown of antique shops that was deserted after 6pm.

To all of the women and men (I call out the women first for good reason) who've helped to create a more engaged and informed community, we've appreciated your dedication and professionalism. Thank you for your work in service to our communities. Good luck in your new adventures and may we meet again.

We are so proud to say that our very own Kelly Crowley was just named by the Campbell Chamber of Commerce as Campbell's Citizen of the Year for 2018! This is a very big deal. It's the highest honor that could be bestowed upon those who have shown dedication to making the Campbell area community one that people look up to. It's an award that acknowledges that your generosity, dedication, and love for those around you was critical in making Campbell the place that it is today. It means that you are more than just a member of this culture. You are an ingredient of the culture.

Indeed Kelly has been an ingredient of Campbell for a long time. She's been a part of the Downtown Campbell crew for over 20 years in a variety of roles. She is currently a board member of the Downtown Campbell Business Association (the owners of this Facebook Page) and the General Manager of Khartoum. As a board member, she is involved in organizing and planning many of the increasingly popular events happening in Downtown Campbell. We'd list them, but it'll just be a list of almost everything we do. As Khartoum's General Manager she is not only running a successful business, but also one that is always ready to host a fundraiser and pitch in to support important causes in the community.

We are so proud, Kelly! Well done and well deserved!

This photo was taken at last year's Celebrate Campbell Dinner at Villa Ragusa where Kelly was named the Downtown Campbell Business Association's person of the year, which was already a very nice honor in its own right. If you want to celebrate Kelly and other cornerstones of the Campbell Community, join us at the Celebrate Campbell Awards Dinner in March!

Boiler Maker Opening Soon!

Posted on January 26th, 2018 by Downtown Campbell

It has been months in the making, but the transformation of what used to be Liquid Bread Gastropub is almost complete. If all goes well, it's just weeks away from coming back as Boiler Maker and if you want to know if the Bearnaise Burger will still be on the menu, you'll have to mail me an envelope full of cash!

Just kidding. Please put the money back, ok? I don't know. We're all gonna have to wait to find out.
