The 9th Annual Holiday Market is back and better than ever. This holiday tradition is more than just a way to get your holiday shopping done – it’s an experience!
Williamsport, PA, November 27th, 2018 – The 9th Annual Holiday Market is back and better than ever before. With open artist studios, chances to win factory-made prizes, live music, special art exhibitions and demos, you’ll be able to check everyone off your Christmas list and have a wonderful time doing it.
NEW this year! We have 3 different, large market venues for patrons to shop from: our Community Room located on the ground-level next to the Cemetery Street parking lot, the Billtown Bazaar venue, located on the ground-level at the Rose Street entrance, and Clearstory located on the 2nd floor of building 6 through our Courtyard entrance. These venues will host over 70 local artisans, craftsmen, and small businesses! Food trucks will be onsite, and Bullfrog Brewery will be serving a selection of their finest brews in the Community Room, while Bastress Mountain Winery & Mountain Top Distillery will be providing $5 wine, sangria, and samples in the Clearstory.
For a second year, we will be partnering with the local Salvation Army. They will be ringing the bell at each of our main entrances, and will not only provide for a good cause, but will also serve as a lovely, welcoming sound to direct guests into the Factory. Joining us for the first time will be the Williamsport Civic Chorus who will be caroling around the 3 main venues while flutist, Jennifer Johnson, will be playing selections from her brand new album, A Christmas Allelujah, https://www.breathofpraise.com.
“We are also bringing back our popular studio passport (and homage to Duboistown), Candy Cane Lane,” said Event Coordinator, Danielle Velkoff. Guests can pick up a pass from any participating studio or market venue and will need to collect enough stamps from each of the different, open studios for a chance to win factory-made donations and prizes valued at over $100. “This is a great way to meet the tenants and see what it is we do here. Keep the gifts for yourself or give them away as gifts to others! You’ll learn how to navigate the building and have fun doing it. Don’t forget to stop at our 3rd floor to check out our new studio construction and visit Santa’s village.”
The 9th Annual Holiday Market is located at 1307 Park Avenue, Williamsport, PA 17701, and will take place 2nd Saturday, December 8th from 11am-4pm. Free admission and family friendly.
