The Armadillo Christmas Bazaar is such a fun shopping experience with a very Austin vibe. You’ll find a beautiful assortment of fine art and crafts, a great music lineup, delicious food, and cold beer, too. The Armadillo Christmas Bazaar is open Tuesday, Dec.15 through Thursday, Dec. 24 from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. daily at the Palmer Events Center. Plus kids 12 and under are free!


The Armadillo Christmas Bazaar is actually like two events in one: an art fair and a music festival. The Armadillo stage showcases some of Austin’s most popular musical talent, with live performances throughout the afternoon and evening. You’ll find 28 musicians/bands over the nine-day show including Dale Watson, Asleep at the Wheel, Shinyribs, Carolyn Wonderland, Ray Wylie Hubbard and so many more. Check out the full music schedule here.

You can browse an amazing array of handmade items from 160+ artists. Check out the full list of artists here.


No Austin event would be complete without food and drink — especially during such a season of merriment! You can find a full bar each day as well as food from Southside Flying Pizza that will satisfy the cravings of both the kids and grown-ups.

Admission is $8 for a single day pass. Kids 12 and under FREE! You can click here to purchase your tickets online. Parking is available at the Palmer Events Center Garage for $8.
