44th CHRISTMAS COLLECTION STILL GOING STRONG!
Richmond, VA Don’t think for a minute that this locally owned gift show is going the way of traditional retail shops. While shopping centers and traditional brick and mortar stores seem to be faltering, The Bizarre Bazaar®’s Christmas Collection is stronger than ever!
We are more than just a place to buy a gift. People travel from the tri-state area and beyond to spend the day at our event. They coordinate their outfits, come dressed in elaborate costumes, tailgate in the parking lot, all to celebrate the season and enjoy a day with friends.
In recent years we have been voted the BEST CRAFT FAIR OR EVENT by the readers of Richmond Magazine. This is a very proud distinction for an event that began over 40 years ago in local owner Alice Siegel’s living room. Since then we have grown to over 500 exhibitors with an attendance of 30,000.
Additionally, we are able to help raise money for causes near and dear to us. This year we will sponsor a Preview Shopping Night, Wednesday, Dec. 4th to benefit Operation Healing Forces, an organization founded by Gary Markel to assist active duty and recent-veteran wounded service members and their spouses in the physical, emotional and mental healing needed in order to return to civilian life.
The Bizarre Bazaar®’s 44th Christmas Collection show dates & times:
Dec. 5th & 6th, 8am to 7pm, Dec. 7th, 10am to 7pm, and Dec. 8th, 10am to 5pm at the Richmond Raceway Complex, 600 East Laburnum Avenue, Richmond, 23222. Tickets $8.50 in advance or $9.00 at the door.
