HOLIDAY MARKET TICKETS ON SALE
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2022 AT 8 A.M. 

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 raises over $285,000 to support our mission and programs, which include 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!
