Holiday Market is Here! Final Details For Shoppers

posted on

Holiday Market is finally here! We are so excited that you have chosen to celebrate the season with us. Your support enables us to further our vision of strengthening the health and well-being of children and families in the Midlands.

**NEW** this year!!
Market Mystery Money
Shoppers are invited to visit the “Market Mystery Money” booth at Holiday Market and donate $25 directly to the Junior League of Columbia. Donors will receive $50 worth of gift certificates to be used at Holiday Market. The mystery is which booth the gift certificates will be designated for. When purchasing, shoppers will choose a category such as women’s clothing, children’s clothing, gifts, etc. The gift certificates received will fall under the category chosen. There is no limit as to how many can be purchased, but the booth will only be open during Holiday Market hours.

Parking Update (Saturday)
As you may know, the University of South Carolina has a football game against the University of Akron (to replace the Marshall game previously canceled due to Hurricane Florence) scheduled for Saturday, December 1 at noon. Holiday Market will run normal hours on Saturday as previously announced (9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.), but please see below for adjustments to parking:

» Before 1 p.m. – Enter the fairgrounds through Gate 1 (entrance is on Rosewood closer to Assembly)
» After 1 p.m. – Enter the fairgrounds at the rocket (North Gate)

If you have a football parking pass, you may enter at Gate 1 with that pass and not pay for parking. Otherwise, parking will be $5. Please follow the direction of the parking attendants. In case of a large crowd, you may be directed to a designated overflow lot.

Holiday Market will be offering discounted $5 admission at the door on Saturday. The discounted $5 tickets cannot be used for reentry on any other day. You may still use previously purchased $8 General Admission tickets and Preview Party/Ladies Night Out stubs for entry on Saturday.
