450!  There’s a lot going on at this year’s Portland Holiday Market but the real star of the show are the exhibitors.  More than 450 of them! In fact, a lot more than 450…nearly 500!  There’s nothing like this show anywhere in the Northwest and very few like it anywhere in the country! You’ll find that special, one-of-a-kind, signature Christmas gift here!  It’s the one show you can do ALL your holiday shopping in one place at one time.  Buy for Thanksgiving, Christmas AND New Year’s! Food items, spirits, home décor, apparel, furniture, glassware, metal art, handmade chocolates and candies, plants, ceramics, jewelry, woodcarving, candles, coffee and tea, pet supplies and gifts, painters and much, much, much more are well represented!

Looking For Something Special? There are tens of thousands of one-of-a-kind, unique and memorable gifts to shop at this year’s show.  If you’re looking for something singularly special — you’ll find it here!

A Focus On Handmade.  You’ll find LOTS of one-of-kind, locally-produced, handmade items at this year’s Portland Holiday Market.  It’s what makes this show special, different and better! Talk to the people who make these products, one-on-one, get their story and the story behind the items you purchase.  We’ve traveled far and wide to bring you the very best makers and creators in the Northwest and beyond.

Buy Local. Nearly all of this year’s exhibitors are from right here in the Pacific Northwest.  Northwest-sourced, produced and sold.  You can feel good about the purchases you make are supporting local home-grown businesses.

Visit SantaLand – See Santa and Mrs. Claus!  Bring the kids and get your picture on Santa’s lap…Mrs. Claus will be there too!  Santa’s bringing his photographer and you can choose between the various packages that best suit your needs. Get your photo then roam the show and return to pick them up!

Santa’s reindeer! Santa’s reindeer are back!  It won’t be the whole herd but two of them, that is, two honest-to-goodness live reindeer will be at the show for all to admire and, we’re sure, get plenty of selfies.  There’s nothing like seeing them up-close and it’s no wonder why Santa chose reindeer to help him out.  They’re cool!

Holiday Movies! Stop by the Holiday Theater where Christmas-themed movies will be playing all day, every day of the show.  It’s a great place to take a break and get in the spirit of the holidays during your shopping journey at the show courtesy of T-Mobile.

Christmas Carols! New for 2023! We’re thrilled to add The Dickens Carolers to our daily line-up.  They’re a Portland institution having made numerous appearances on local news and around town during the holidays.  After nearly 40 years, these vocalists’ 4-part harmonies and deep repertoire of Christmas carols make them a welcome addition to this year’s show.  You’ll find their performance times on the show’s website under “Attractions”. 

25’ Living Blue Spruce Lighted Christmas Tree.   We have another great photo op: our 25’ lighted Blue Spruce Christmas tree. It’s been purchased so when the show’s over it’s going to its forever home to grow and thrive!

New Workshops! There’s three! Another first for the 2023 Portland Holiday Market is a new workshop series.
