Junior League of Columbia

Holiday Market

Holiday Market is the largest fundraiser for the Junior League of Columbia. Approximately 150 merchants from across the country sell merchandise during a themed shopping extravaganza, which includes a preview party, ladies only shopping event, and a children’s event with the season’s biggest celebrity, Santa!

Our four-day shopping event raises over $250,000, which helps our league members further our vision of strengthening the health and well-being of children and families in the Midlands. Each year, our members log over 1800 volunteer hours in our community and work with over 30 community partners to help fund over 50 community projects.

Holiday Market Special Events

Holiday Market will begin Wednesday evening, November 30 with Preview Party, an exclusive black-tie optional event. Attendees will enjoy a fabulous silent auction, live music, private shopping, cocktails and delectable eats.

The fun will continue Thursday evening, December 1 with Ladies Night Out, a sellout each year. Bring your girlfriends and shop the night away! Ladies will enjoy a silent auction featuring merchant gifts, music by one of the hottest DJ’s in town, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.

We will conclude Holiday Market on Sunday, December 4 with Sundaes with Santa, our newest children’s event. Dress your children in their Sunday best for photos with Santa, enjoy games and crafts with your family, and top off the fun with an ice cream sundae bar!
