The Armadillo Christmas Bazaar is an 11 day upscale shopping destination featuring national and local award-winning artists, with live music and two full bars in a festive, lively atmosphere. This annual tradition and cultural icon is one of Austin’s longest running art and music festivals attracting around 40,000 shoppers each year.
Find an exciting variety of upscale art, handmade gifts, heirloom pieces and stocking stuffers for everyone on your list from over 160 carefully curated artists. The Armadillo makes holiday shopping fun in an upbeat, family friendly environment. This is the place to find gifts from the heart, build an art collection year by year, personally meet the artists and commission custom pieces.
Enjoy at least three bands per day on the Armadillo stage with set times for any lifestyle at 11am, 3pm and 7pm. Featured musicians include emerging stars, local legends and Grammy winners. Armadillo’s intimate stage allows you to experience Texas music all-stars in a rare holiday setting surrounded by friends and family.
