Elf Market 2017


Support local artists and find holiday gifts that are truly one of a kind!

The 11th Annual Elf Market, a magical festival of holiday arts and crafts, will take place at The ArtsCenter on the first Saturday in December from 10 AM – 5 PM.

 Elf Market features over 40 local artists offering jewelry, pottery, clothing, accessories, soaps, toys, and lots of unique & affordable handmade items for all ages. The bar will be open for holiday beverages, and a kids’ zone will feature classic holiday films.

New this year! The Elf Market will include a Handmade Silent Auction of items contributed by vendors. All proceeds from vendor entry fees and auction item sales directly benefit the ArtsCenter Education Scholarship Fund, which provides financial assistance for youth and adult artists to participate in classes and camps.
