December 16 – 24 • 11am – 11pm daily • Palmer Events Center


(Austin, TX) The Armadillo Christmas Bazaar, one of Austin’s longest-running iconic events returns December 16-24, from 11am to 11pm daily at the Palmer Events Center, 900 Barton Springs Road, Austin, Texas 78704. 


With nearly four decades of bringing holiday cheer to Austin, this year’s event features the most dazzling selection of distinctive gifts, fine art and artisan crafts; running the gamut from statement-making collectible fine art to distinctive and modestly-priced stocking stuffers. Over 160 locally and nationally acclaimed artists, including 11 dynamic newcomers, line the aisles of Palmer Events Center with stunning holiday displays. Armadillo Christmas Bazaar offers art you can own and art you can give. The Bazaar will stimulate your senses with enticing art you can see, art you can smell, art you can touch, taste and hear.

Equally rousing is the Armadillo’s legendary music festival, which in and of itself draws crowds for the rare opportunity to hear intimate showcases from some of the most renowned musicians in Central Texas. At least three bands per day claim the stage, from the hottest new groups to longtime favorites, from singer-songwriters, rock n' rollers, western swingers to gospel/soul harmonizers and country music outlaws. Musicians include Ruthie Foster, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Carolyn Wonderland, Shiny Ribs and Mayeux and Broussard. Approximately 28 bands/musicians will be participating.
