The Mat-Su Holiday Marketplace is a one stop holiday shopping extravaganza for Wasilla and the Mat-Su Valley. This event takes place November 5 & 6, 2016 at the Menard Sports Center (44 mile Parks Highway) and gives the area an opportunity to shop for unique and one of a kind gifts, right in their neighborhood, without that long commute to Anchorage. There is a $4 admission charge, kids 12 and under are free, and Military is free on Sunday with ID.

Jewelry, furs, original artwork, fleece, pottery, etched glassware… you’ll find unique items from all around the state. No need to waste a tank of gas looking for the perfect gift!
