The 2013 Juneau Public Market
Juneau's premier Christmas gifts and crafts show.
In 2013, the Alaska-Juneau Public Market, an annual holiday retail event, will be held November 29, 30 and December 1. Each year, the “Public Market” features well over 150 vendors from every corner of Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. It is held on Thanksgiving weekend in the Juneau Centennial Hall and Convention Center and the nearby Juneau Arts and Culture Center (JACC).
The “Public Market” became a well-established Christmas season tradition for the people of Juneau and the surrounding region soon after opening in 1983, one of the first events to be staged at Juneau’s new convention center.
Items for sale include a wide variety of jewelry and Alaska Native arts; custom made garments, decorations, and utensils like knives and ulus; gift-quality foods such as wild berry products, smoked salmon, and salad dressings; Christmas gift packages, a selection of toys, and recently published books. Our motto is “Only at the Public Market,” since most of our crafters and artists display only at this show.
A well-served food court provides the weary shopper (or their standby assistants) a place to sit to enjoy an entreé, dessert, and beverages. We also have an espresso bar.
We accept requests at any time to be included in our contact list. Applications for space are accepted beginning July 1. For more information download the “Mail-in” application form and the floor plan form.
Vendor set-up : Wednesday (the day before Thanksgiving), 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and Friday morning (the day after Thanksgiving), 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Open to the public: noon to 8:00 p.m. Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
At Centennial Hall, we charge admission to the Public Market; at the Public Market Annex in the Juneau Arts & Culture Center (JACC), admission is free.
Since admission is charged for the Public Market in Centennial Hall, vendors are asked to feature products available “Only at the Public Market.” Space assignment to the Public Market Annex, where no admission is charged, is first to apply, first to choose. See the application form for details.
