About This Festival
From the Organizer
The Armadillo Christmas Bazaar, one of Austin’s longest-running iconic events. With nearly four decades of bringing holiday cheer to Austin, this 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. Many locally and nationally acclaimed artists 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 stimulates 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.
