Welcome to Auburn Maine's 3nd Annual


Salute to Dinny Sullivan


Hats off to Neighborhood Businesses!


Thank you for your support.






2012 Dinny Sullivan Festival

We salute Dinny Sullivan on Saturday, March 15th with a “Hats Off” to Neighborhood businesses.  Mr.   Sullivan was a local merchant in New Auburn. He exemplifies the hard work, long hours, and commitment to the local community.  We want to tip our hat to neighborhood businesses that are essential to the fabric of life in Auburn.  Neighborhood business owners are our friends and neighbors.


Often they work daily in the business and yet find time to support many community activities and events. Let’s use the holiday to “toast” them one and all.

Who we want to recognize:  Small, neighborhood business- corner stores, barber or hair stylists, mechanics, coffee shops and local restaurants, saw sharpeners, music store, florist, pawn shops… YOU!!

How we recognize a neighborhood business:  Sign in the window which gives history, owners and staff names or interesting facts.  The sign will Tip our Hat and say “thank you”.  We will be happy to provide a small sign(s).  We want people to stop in and say- “Happy to have you here!”  The company will also be noted in the window on Court Street and in all publicity.

We want to celebrate that our neighborhood businesses generate a buzz of positive activity, which make them places where people want to be and shop.  We hope visitors will “Experience Auburn” as its best.  Your business helps foster local identity and can build an authenticity that is elusive among today’s big companies.

Saturday, March 15th will have events and informal gathering places for neighbors to meet, share and laugh, and celebrate YOU.  We appreciate the commitment and leadership you dedicate to making Auburn even better.
This day will give the community the opportunity to “brag” about you.  Word of mouth is often more valuable than professional advertising, marketing and Public Relations.
