November 21, 2019 - The Yosemite Holiday Craft Bazaar is a festive event that offers an opportunity to shop for handmade gifts from Yosemite area artists while raising funds for the Yosemite National Park Child Care Center (YNPCCC).
Each year, on the first Friday of December, artists from the Yosemite region gather to share their talents with visitors. This year, the show will be held in a new location due to construction. The 47th annual Yosemite Holiday Craft Bazaar will be at the Yosemite Valley Lodge, on Friday, December 6th from 11:00 A.M. – 6:00 P.M.

Yosemite Holiday Craft Bazaar visitors will also find an exciting silent auction, a large raffle, a specially prepared lunch available for purchase, and an enticing bake sale. Artists donate 10% off their profits to YNPCCC and all of the proceeds from the auction, lunch and bake sale also go to fund the childcare centers.

The artists who show their work at the Yosemite Holiday Craft Bazaar either live in Yosemite or have a deep love for Yosemite. Their work is unique and reflects the surroundings in which it is made. Purchasing work directly from artists not only supports the artists, it supports the local children and allows each shopper to connect directly with the person who made the gift they will give. It’s fun, good for the local economy, and meaningful to shop locally with the handmade artisans you’ll find at the Yosemite Holiday Craft Bazaar!
The childcare center supported by this delightful holiday shopping event is in two locations in Yosemite National Park: El Portal and Yosemite Valley. The children, parents, and staff are grateful for the support they receive from this fundraiser.
Please join us for good times, arts and crafts, and tasty treats this year on Friday, December 6th from 11:00 A.M. – 6:00 P.M. at the Yosemite Valley Lodge in Yosemite Valley!
