For 43 years, the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar has been a favorite Austin holiday shopping experience. The event, which runs from Dec. 13-24, combines a curated artisan market with concerts from (mostly) local musicians three times daily.
This year, the Bazaar has added a charitable component dubbed “12 Days of Giving.”
“The Armadillo Bazaar has thrived for 43 seasons because of Austin’s deep appreciation for live music and the arts. This year, in addition to our usual charitable efforts, we will partner with 12 organizations, many of them supporting arts and music in our community,” Anne Johnson, Armadillo Christmas Bazaar Associate Producer said in a statement to the media.
Each of the Armadillo's partner organizations will receive a portion of proceeds for their designated day.
