Holiday Market — Clone

Holiday Market is the largest fundraiser for the Junior League of Columbia. Each year, thousands of shoppers head to the South Carolina State Fairgrounds to find the perfect gifts from nearly 170 merchants and take part in the always sold-out Ladies Night Out event, our festive Holiday Ball, and a chance to snap the perfect picture with Santa during Sundaes with Santa.

Our four-day shopping event raised over $287,821 in 2019 to support our mission and programs, which includes furthering our vision of strengthening the health and well-being of children and families in the Midlands.

Holiday Market could not be a success without support from the Columbia community and across the state. We are thankful for your continued support!

Tickets go on sale October 1, so start making your holiday gift lists, mark your calendars, and don’t miss this exciting shopping event that is sure to bring you many memories this holiday season!
