The Armadillo Christmas Bazaar turns holiday shopping woes into a musical, artistic adventure with a full bar. Over 160 mostly local artists will set up shop in the Palmer Events Center (900 Barton Springs Rd), showing everything from statement pieces to stocking stuffers until the festival shuts down on Christmas Eve. You’re welcome, last minute shoppers.

Find custom art, jewelry, furnishings, decor, and more for even the pickiest person on your list. And no need to browse emptihanded; grab an Independence Austin Amber or an Austin Eastciders Original cider to sip while you shop.

The festival will also feature three live, mostly local bands every day. Wednesday’s acts are Suzanna Choffel (12 p.m.), MilkDrive (3:30 p.m.), and Shinyribs (8:00 p.m.).

The festival is open for business from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily until Christmas Eve. A hand stamp for daily come-and-go entry to the festival is $7.
