Holiday Market

Wednesday, December 4, 2019 - Sunday, December 8, 2019

South Carolina State Fairgrounds

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 is used 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.

A very special thank you to all who made the 2018 Holiday Market a success! Save the dates … JLC is already busy planning the 2019 Holiday Market!


All events are held at the Cantey and Goodman Buildings at the South Carolina State Fairgrounds, located at 1200 Rosewood Drive, Columbia, SC 29201.
