Publish date:

Saint Paul's RiverCentre will be transformed into festive shopping wonderland for one day only next month.

The exhibition center announced on Monday that for one day, on Saturday, Dec. 15, it will host a sprawling "Holiday Market."

The free-to-enter event, coordinated by Hastings-based At Home Creations, will feature more than 100 artists, vendors and small businesses including many from Minnesota, such as Portland Ave. Candles and Northern Trends.

Naturally, there will be a visit from Santa Claus for the kids (or adults, if you wish), who will hand out a gift after posing for a photo.

The first 100 guests to get to the event will be given complimentary gift bags, while one shopper will win a $100 gift card to Cub Foods.

While the RiverCentre is known for its annual craft market, this is the first Holiday Market event of its kind at the venue, though it did recently host the St. Paul Festival of Trees.

The Holiday Market will be held between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 15. More details can be found here.
