Local Events and News


     The Livingston Specialty Merchant’s Guild loves taking every chance possible to keep the community that they serve well taken care of and especially entertained. This means making sure we supply our site with as much information as we can on local events. Not only do we share events that we and our members sponsor/host, but we also share with locals and visitors alike additional events that might be of interest. Feel free to submit an event to the calendar.

     There are many different types of local events going on all year. Livingston loves to have family friendly events that keep us coming together like the famous. In small towns like this everything can turn into some kind of a reunion. It’s always a special sight to see all kinds of people coming together for some random fun but having it turn into extra special memories with loved ones. There are also many events just for kids with the entertainment geared towards a younger crowd. Plus some events set up with a more adult environment when it is time for a night out on the town. Livingston Specialty Merchant’s Guild invites one and all to see how we #livlocal at these events. 

     On the off chance there is not an event going on during a visit to town or additional places to make some memories are needed, then check out these favorite local places to shop, dine, stay, or play.
