Holiday Bazaar to take place in new location


November 22, 2010

Formerly operated by the MSU Campus Activities Board (CAB) the 38th Annual Holiday Bazaar has recently been placed in the hands of the Starkville Main Street Association at the Greater Starkville Development Partnership (GSDP) and will take place at the Starkville Sportsplex at 405 Lynn Lane for the first time this year. Set for Wednesday, December 1st through Friday, December 3rd, this popular event will be very similar to previous Holiday Bazaars but will be in a new location this year.

"We were honored that the MSU Campus Activities Board has asked us to spearhead this successful and popular event this year, and we hope to follow the same successful practices of CAB, but with a few new twists," said GSDP vice president for tourism development & Starkville Main Street manager Jennifer Gregory.

All 110 booth spaces have been filled and vendors from all over the southeast have been accepted to sell holiday decor, crafts, handmade items, jewelry, pottery, food products, and much more.

In addition to a new location with increased parking, the Holiday Bazaar will also offer a cafe in which local restaurants will sell food during the lunch and dinner hours to provide an additional convenience for shoppers and vendors. The 38th Annual Starkville Holiday Bazaar will be open for shoppers from 10:00 a.m.--7:00 p.m. on December 1st and 2nd and from 10:00 a.m.--2:00 p.m. on December 3rd. Admission is free.
