November 17th, 2023

The Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with a downtown collective group of stakeholders, will host Midnight Madness on November 17, 2023 from 4:00 pm to 12:00 midnight. Midnight Madness is a yearly event that usually takes place a week before Black Friday to encourage people to shop early and support the local shops and owners within the downtown core.

The Downtown Collective

Our downtown has stood the test of time and holds immense history and value. It represents a truly unique and iconic development area for economic and social activity and has the ability, as been demonstrated in the past, to create a critical mass of commercial, cultural and community activities.

Similarly, our Chamber has been around since 1900 and has stood the test of time. We recognize the value of our downtown core and its potential, and we have consistently demonstrated our willingness to work together on our collective efforts. Our Chamber also represents 112 downtown stakeholders as members of our organization. This represents more than one-tenth of our membership, so we have a vested interest in serving these members and all stakeholders of the downtown to make sure we can support their needs moving forward.
