Bizarre Bazaar

Bizarre Bazaar


Thank you for another successful year!

Whistler’s largest holiday artisan market celebrated its 27th consecutive year on November 28 & 29, 2015. Over 12,000 shoppers attended - the highest-ever recorded attendance!

For two days, Bizarre Bazaar presented over one hundred artisans under one roof at the Whistler Conference Center and thousands of unique, handcrafted products right at shoppers’ fingertips. Complimented by live music and carols, family entertainers, a visit from Santa and a silent auction to benefit the arts in Whistler, Bizarre Bazaar was a festive affair that was enjoyed by all.

Stay tuned for details on Bizarre Bazaar 2016
