Location Update
Our Grande Finale Waldo Party is on Saturday, August 3rd at 11:00. The party has a new location – we’re moving it from the bookstore to the Davidson Farmers Market. In fact, the DFM has designated Aug. 3rd as Kids Day at the Market, so our Waldo party will be part of their market kids’ initiative. Thank you to the new market manager, Justin, for his enthusiastic reception of this shindig!

Find WALDO in Davidson – July 1st the search begins!


Guess who’s back? Waldo, of course!

Main Street Books and 29 Davidson merchants are hosting a month-long scavenger hunt for Waldo around Town.


How does Find Waldo Local work?

On July 1, 2019, Waldo-spotters will set off to find the elusive character, who is hidden in dozens of downtown businesses. Participants pick up a Find Waldo passport at Main Street Books and collect a store stamp or signature for each Waldo or Odlaw they locate. Turn in your complete passport by July 31st to be eligible for prizes.

Main Street Books is  hosting a Grande Finale Party on Saturday, August 3rd, 2019 at 11 AM with tons of prizes from our participating merchants!

Allen Tate – Davidson is one of the hiding spots.  Stop in and say hi to Clark.  704 996-0948


Where’s Waldo Final Week – Davidson, NC

Where’s Waldo? In Davidson, of course! The iconic children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting over 20 local businesses throughout our community this July. Find Waldo Local is a great summer vacation activity and a wonderful way to support local businesses and the Shop Local movement in our community, including these partners: The Jewel Box, The Soda Shop, Ben & Jerry’s, South Main Sweet Shop, The Needlecraft Center, and Whit’s.


Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo Local in Davidson!” passport, which contains the names of all the participating sites, and get their passport stamped or signed for each Waldo they spot. Collecting store stamps or signatures at twenty or more businesses will entitle diligent seekers entry into a prize drawing.


This year marks both Waldo’s and Main Street Books’ thirtieth anniversary, and to celebrate, Main Street Books will throw a joint birthday party on July 30th at 2 pm. The whole town is invited to join in birthday games, indulge in snacks and sweets, find a good book, and witness the reveal of the Find Waldo Local prize winners.
