The Holiday Marketplace is a one stop Christmas shopping extravaganza for Fairbanks and outlying areas. From hand-made soap, to beaded earrings, to imported wool sweaters…It’s all together in one location on one floor with lots of free parking. Admission is $5 at the door, children 12 and under are free.
The show’s continued success attracts not only local but state-wide businesses and artists. Over 182 different vendors participated in the 2013 event and it had a 3 day public attendance of 7000. With 2014 comes all of your favorite booths as well as some exciting new gift ideas.
If you are a vendor looking for a holiday show, the Holiday Marketplace has become an established, highly anticipated, annual event that Fairbanks consumers use as the kick off to their holiday shopping season. It is an excellent chance for you to market your goods to a wide cross section of our community. The show generally sells out so register early. Don’t miss this once-a-year opportunity to be part of the excitement, profit, and fun.
Preference will be given to hand made in Alaska items and items unique to the event.
It’s taking place at the Carlson Center, the interior’s premier location for trade shows. There’s over 43,000 sq. ft. of available space and the unique layout of this show provides 112 corner spaces with additional aisles for great traffic flow.
The dates for the 2014 event are November 14, 15, & 16. Six weeks before Christmas…giving shoppers plenty of time to get those out of state gifts in the mail.
