Art for you, gifts for them, music for everyone. The Armadillo Christmas Bazaar is an 11-day fine art shopping destination featuring national and local award-winning artists, live music, and two full bars in a festive, lively atmosphere. In its 42nd season, this annual tradition and cultural icon is one of Austin's longest running art and music festivals attracting around 40,000 shoppers each year. It all adds up to a fun authentic Austin experience.

Find an exciting variety of fine art, handmade gifts, heirloom pieces, and stocking stuffers for everyone on your list from over 160 carefully curated artists. The Armadillo makes holiday shopping fun in an upbeat, family-friendly environment. This is the place to find gifts from the heart, build an art collection year by year, personally meet the artists, and commission custom pieces.

Enjoy at least three bands per day on the Armadillo stage with set times for any lifestyle. Featured musicians include emerging stars, local legends, and Grammy winners. Armadillo's intimate stage allows you to experience Texas music all-stars in a rare holiday setting surrounded by friends and family.

Tickets are $8 for a single-day pass; available at the door, or in advance beginning Fall 2017. For best value, purchase a season pass, which allows entry throughout the duration of the 11-day Armadillo Christmas Bazaar. Free admission for children 12 and under.
