When is the Holiday Artists’ Market?
The first weekend in December.
Saturday, December 6th 10a-7p
Sunday, December 7th 12-5p
Where is the Holiday Artists’ Market?
Steelcase Town Hall
901 44th Street SE
Grand Rapids, MI 49508
Why did the market move from the UICA building?
As big as UICA is, our ongoing exhibitions led to space constraints last year that limited us to 40 vendors. In order to continue showing exhibitions on all four floors, and invite more artists to participate, we needed more room for the Market. When Steelcase generously offered the Town Hall space, we were happy to accept. We hope that all of UICA’s guests will attend the Holiday Artists’ Market, and still enjoy UICA’s December exhibitions, gift shop, and movies.
Where can I park?
Parking is FREE and will be well marked on the east side of Steelcase town hall. Entrance is off of 44th street.
Is there an admission fee?
Admission to the Holiday Artists’ Market is FREE for everyone.
Is the venue handicapped accessible?
Absolutely, and stroller accessible, too.
What kind of vendors should I expect to see?
Beautifully crafted gifts and goods from dozens of regional artists, including jewelry, ceramics, letterpress, home goods, fine art, holiday cards, accessories, and toys.
Are credit cards accepted?
The Market vendors are each handling their own transactions this year, which will mean faster checkout times and shorter lines. Most vendors will accept credit cards, but we always recommend bringing cash just in case. There is not an ATM on site.
Are there food and beverages at the venue?
Yes! We have confirmation from GR Bagel, Direct Trade Coffee, and Propoganda Donuts. Interested in being a food vendor? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I volunteer to help at this event?
Absolutely! Please email email@example.com
