Fairbanks Holiday Marketplace

November 15-17, 2024
The Carlson Center in Fairbanks, Alaska

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, there are literally thousands of gift ideas in one warm location! Admission is $5 at the door; children 12 and under are free.

The show’s continued success attracts not only local but also statewide businesses and artists. Over 175 different vendors participated in the 2023 event, and it had a 3-day public attendance of over 7,000. With 2024 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 and highly anticipated annual event that Fairbanks consumers use as the kickoff 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.
