Armadillo Christmas Bazaar opening day at Palmer Events Center. Nearly 40 years old now, this tradition born at the late, great Armadillo World Headquarters has had an itinerant existence, wandering for a while through downtown locations such as Austin Music Hall and the Convention Center before landing in the Long Center complex across the street from its original spot. The Americana-focused music lineups are as big a draw as the gift booths: Opening day features sets by Dale Watson (8 p.m.), the Carper Family (3:30 p.m.) and Mayeux & Broussard (noon). $7. 900 Barton Springs Road. armadillobazaar.com. — P.B.
