Preview Party and Silent Auction

Enjoy music, entertainment by GrooveTown, and delicious food from Southern Way Catering at our black tie optional event, Preview Party and Silent Auction. We will have some new selections for you to try this year and it will be a great chance to get a jump on your shopping.

6:30 pm to 11:00 pm
$55 per person or $95 per couple before November 15, 2014
$75 per person after November 15, 2014 

Preview Party ticket stubs can be used for one free re-entry into the market during regular hours.  There will be no charge for parking during this event.

Silent Auction Mobile Bidding.  This year, Preview Party is introducing Mobile Bidding! Attendees (and non-attendees) will be able to preview silent auction items prior to the event, and then bid on the items via text message.  Here's how it works...

The auction will be open on December 3 from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm. Once you sign up for mobile bidding, you will receive a text message when the auction opens so you can start bidding. You will text the item number you want to bid on and your bid will be registered. You will then be notified if you are outbid, so you can re-bid on the item if you want. Pre-register for the silent auction at https://www.bidr.co/events/holidaymarket and check out some of our auction items. The website will be updated weekly, so check back periodically to see new items.

PJ's with Santa


Join Santa and his elves for an evening of fun at PJ's with Santa. Games, activities, crafts, movies, storytelling, and more help make this a wonderful tradition for your family to create those magical holiday memories with your children!

Santa will be there and professional photography is available. Bring your little ones dressed in pajamas! In an effort to keep the Santa line moving, participants will be given a number to see Santa when they enter. During the event, the numbers will be announced on the loudspeaker to notify you when it is your time to go to the Santa line.  Pizza by the slice and drinks will be available for purchase. In addition, Holiday Market merchants will be open, so plan to shop.
