The town of Davidson will be sponsoring its fourth annual “Cookie Crawl” as an effort to introduce residents and visitors to Davidson businesses, kick off the holiday shopping season and support local retailers.

On Nov. 2 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., more than 20 Davidson businesses will hand out freshly baked, pre-packaged cookies to passport holders. To participate, purchase a ticket for $20 via an online application at A maximum of 100 tickets will be sold, and each ticket guarantees one cookie per location.

On the day of the Cookie Crawl, check in at the table in front of the Village Store at 110 S. Main St. to pick up your passport and cookie collection bag. The passport will include a list of all participating businesses and a map. Participants who have not prepaid before Nov. 2 can pay at the table until supplies last.

“This is a great way to kick off the holiday baking and shopping season by visiting our local shops — you’ll get cookies to eat, share or freeze for the future,” said Economic Development Manager Kim Fleming. “We’re so pleased that all proceeds will benefit the Davidson-Cornelius Child Development Center.”
