Holiday Bazaar

50+ reasons to attend this year’s bazaar!

Fall is here and we are busy getting ready for the Alaska State Fair Holiday Bazaar! The 2018 event will take place Saturday, October 20, from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday, October 21, from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. at Raven Hall on the fairgrounds.

We love this special annual event, and we think you will, too. Here are our five favorite things about the holiday bazaar:

1. As always, admission and parking are free!
2. There will be more than 100 vendors with a wide range of items perfect for holiday gift-giving. (More on that below!)
3. You can keep your energy up for all that holiday shopping with espresso and delicious array of food truck options with an eating area inside Raven Hall, Hoskins building will have hot dogs and chili.
4. We’ll have free craft activities to keep the kiddos entertained while you shop.
5. Raffles for the chance to win great prizes donated by participating vendors. We’ll draw a winner every two hours, so there are plenty of opportunities to win!
