America’s Largest Christmas Bazaar –
For the past 39 years, America’s Largest Christmas Bazaar has been a day-after-Thanksgiving tradition for thousands of families! You can find hundreds of handcrafted gifts made by local and regional artisans and craftspeople. The handcrafted sections of the show are juried, so only the best-of-the-best is allowed to display. The entire show is filled with hundreds more gift ideas as well; it’s the most complete gift show of its kind in the Northwest! The show runs this November 29, 30 and December 1st and the next weekend too – December 6, 7, 8.
Visit with Santa in Santa’s Village.
Santa’s Village is a large, walk through display that changes every year. Santa of course, is the star and photos can be taken with your own cell phone or you can purchase a printed version to take with you. Santa’s Village is in Hall D (the slightly smaller building).
As with any large event, we advise that you wear comfortable shoes. The Expo Center has plenty of food selections onsite. In addition to the concession stands, the Delta Park Café is right in the lobby of Hall D and offers really great food and beverages in a seated environment.
Because we do reserve paging for emergencies, we also recommend that you arrange a meeting location in the event that you become separated from your party. A good spot is the ‘connector hall’ between the two buildings where the food is. Or make sure you have their cell phone number.
The Christmas Bazaar started in 1982, and to this day remains small and local, with 3 employees.
During its 38 years the show has kept pace with what customers want, and we offer a truly unique shopping experience during the holiday season.
The Christmas Bazaar has 1000 booths with half of those being handcrafted vendors. The other half of the show consists of selected commercial items geared towards holiday shopping.
In Hall D we offer Santa’s Village and a beautiful carousel. Santa’s Village is a large, walk through display that changes every year. Santa of course, is the star and photos can be taken with your cell phone or you can purchase a printed version to take with you.
Every year we partner with the Portland Police Sunshine Division Food Bank and offer free admission on the Second Friday (December 6th) with the donation of 2 cans of food.
At the show you will find a select mix of everything from pepper jelly to pet toys, holiday ornaments to hair bows. You can do of your holiday shopping for everyone on your list in one place.
The Christmas Bazaar is 6 day event that runs over two consecutive weekends. November 29th – December 1st and December 6th – December 8th.
Hours are Fridays & Saturdays 10am to 6pm and Sundays 10am to 5pm.
