Holiday Bazaar 2023!

“Hey, Intern Elijah and Director Katy, say cheese!”

One of our most storied events, our annual Holiday Bazaar, was another huge success this year! We were thrilled to welcome to our museum a healthy collection of vendors new and returning alongside Portland’s many holiday shoppers for an afternoon of seasonal joy. The Holiday Bazaar has for over a decade now closed out our museum’s year, and it’s always a gift to us to gather our community round before closing our doors for a long winter’s nap until January!

Newcomers Bank Street Garden of Goods LLC showed their local pride!

“Buy Local” is right! This year’s holiday bazaar was filled to the brim with Portland talent, ranging from artists to craftspeople to authors to brewers! The recently opened Kyros Brewing provided pints for tablers and visitors, while we at the museum provided a fully-stocked snack table of cookies and chocolates. It’s that time of year, cheat the diet a little!

Newcomer Kelsi Irene sold original artwork backdropped by our AHOY wall!

Thank you to everyone who visited and made this event such a success. Until next year!

Multi-year returning vendor Liberty Tattoo and Art Parlor called this year’s bazaar their best one yet!
