Juneau Public Market
Alaska’s premier holiday gifts and crafts show
The 2019 Juneau Public Market:
Thanksgiving weekend, November 29, 30 & December 1.
Hours: open Friday noon to 7pm; Saturday and Sunday 10am to 5 pm.
More parking than ever before: the new parking lot on the site of the former Public Safety Building; acres of parking directly opposite Centennial Hall; open parking at the State Museum Friday and Saturday; parking adjacent to the Elizabeth Peratrovich Hall; and all state parking is open Saturday and Sunday.
Three venues: Juneau Centennial Hall (admission charged) and free-to-enter annexes at the Juneau Arts & Culture Center (JACC) and the Elizabeth Peratrovich Hall (formerly ANB Hall). A trolley car leaves Centennial Hall every ten minutes on the hour to circle the Aak’w Village district.
This year 206 vendors are coming from 29 communities of Alaska and the West Coast—from Dillingham to Bellingham and beyond. Fifty-six of the vendors are new, reflecting the vibrant nature of the Public Market. We always have dozens of veteran vendors the people of Juneau have come to expect (and voice their disappointment if they are not to be found), but the event continually renews itself. And for most of us, the Public Market is a treasured social experience.

ONLY AT THE PUBLIC MARKET… Items for sale typically include a wide variety of jewelry and Alaska Native arts; the latest in fashionable attire and custom made garments; decorations and art to enhance your home; utensils such as knives, ulus, and hand carved serving spoons; sport fishing and outdoor gear; gift-quality foods — wild berry products, gourmet chocolates, raw honey, smoked salmon, herbal teas, and kelp & seaweed condiments; holiday gift packages, a selection of toys, classic Alaska photography and recently published books. Our motto is “Only at the Public Market,” since most of our crafters and artists present their products in Juneau 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.
OUR HISTORY… The first Alaska-Juneau Public Market was among the initial events to be staged at Juneau’s brand new Centennial Hall and Convention Center, which opened in mid-1983.
The “Public Market” at Centennial Hall soon became a well-established holiday season tradition for the people of Juneau and the surrounding region. In 1990, the Public Market expanded from the Sheffield Ballroom to the entire facility, and in 2005 we opened the Public Market Annex at the ANB Hall on Willoughby Ave. In 2007, we moved the Annex to the newly renovated facility now known as the Juneau Arts and Culture Center (JACC), which is immediately adjacent to Centennial Hall. And, in 2018, we expanded once again, this time to the Public Market Annex II at the newly renovated Elizabeth Peratrovich Hall (the former ANB Hall).
