(AUSTIN)- If there’s any time to get nostalgic for the past, it’s the holiday season. That’s why the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar is such an iconic event in Austin every year.
It’s the 41st year for the annual 11 day festival that combines shopping with live music, drinking and food.
Some things have changed over the past four decades: The location started at the Armadillo World Headquarters and now takes place in the Palmer Events Center. It has grown in size from 8,000 square feet to about 44,000 square feet. But, the funky and fun vibe – remains intact.
The Armadillo Christmas Bazaar runs through December 24 at 10 p.m. Tickets are 8 dollars a person and are available at the door. Kids 12 and younger are free.
