It's the Portland Bazaar, a curated holiday fair that celebrates the high-quality handmade work being produced by Portland’s creative community! Grace Bonney (Design*Sponge), Greg Hennes (Antler and Co.) and Matt Pierce (Wood & Faulk) teamed up to create this spectacular event.
The Portland Bazaar will provide a unique spin on traditional holiday fairs. In addition to offering a curated selection of vendors in a wide range of categories (clothing, accessories, home goods, books, music, vintage wares, fine art, food and spirits), the Bazaar will also offer unique demonstrations and classes, including custom bike frame building and DIY workshops that teach visitors how to make holiday wreaths from local Portland flora.Check out some of the wares that will be available...
To compliment the excitement happening inside the Bazaar, the street in front of Sandbox Studio will be closed to traffic and lined with some Portland’s finest food trucks. We aim to provide each and every guest with not only great holiday gift options and DIY ideas, but tasty snacks and drinks to go along with them.
The Portland Bazaar will feature upwards of 70 carefully chosen sellers that wonderfully represent the city’s creative community.
