A Christmas Affair 2013: Winter Wonderland ~ Austin, TX

Each November, the Christmas Season begins with one of the most anticipated shopping events in Austin, the Junior League of Austin's A Christmas Affair.  The 2013 A Christmas Affair, Winter Wonderland, will be held November 20-24, 2013 at Palmer Events Center.  This year's four-day holiday market will highlight the elegance and beauty of winter and celebrate the wonder of the impact that The Junior League of Austin is able to make in our community through programs such as Coats for Kids and Food In Tummies (FIT), along with other selected community projects for 2013-2014.

A Christmas Affair is a fun shopping experience, featuring various local and national vendors.  The Palmer Event center is wonderfully decorated for the season -getting you in the mood to shop for the season! And the shopping is such fun with everything from clothes to toys to art work and of course, lots of great holiday decorations.
