Hat City Holiday Bazaar

We're excited to announce the SECOND ANNUAL HAT CITY HOLIDAY BAZAAR! 

The event will be taking place once again at the Harambee Center on Small Business Saturday, landing on November 25, 2017. We will be transforming this space into a finely curated holiday market filled with local and emerging designers, crafters and makers. Some great finds at the bazaar will include locally made soaps, intricate pieces of jewelry for him + her, eco-friendly toys, unique home finds + fashions and impressively designed holiday ornaments!

This is more than just shopping, though, it's an experience. We will have a live music lineup that will include local bands, musicians and DJ's. Taste some local flavor with food vendors, and watch the youth center in its glory as it's the place for local skateboarders to work their skills in the gym. 

It's important to make shopping small businesses accessible and even more comfortable to the local community, and to have our local makers all in one place where it's the one day our businesses are nationally recognized.
