Cowtown Holiday coming quickly
The Junior League of Fort Worth will stage its 12th annual Christmas in Cowtown Holiday Gift Market this year on Oct. 11-14 at the Amon G. Carter Jr. Exhibits Hall in the Will Rogers Memorial Center. More than 15,000 shoppers are expected to attend.
The Christmas in Cowtown Holiday Gift Market is a juried show of more than 230 exhibitors in a holiday-themed setting, the league said in a news release. Merchants from across the country represent a wide range of categories such as home décor, jewelry, clothing, children’s products, gourmet food and more. The market expands this year to include an additional room of shopping adorned with gifts for just about anyone on your list.
The market also will include special events.
Wednesday’s Cocktails in Cowtown Preview Party features private shopping, local restaurant tasting stations, cocktails, and live entertainment.
New to this year’s market is Thursday’s Making Spirits Bright Brunch & Private Shopping event.
Santa will be available to hear children’s wishes at Cookies & Cocoa with Santa on Saturday and Sunday.
This year, the Junior League of Fort Worth recognizes its Debbie Richardson as the 2018 Christmas in Cowtown Honorary Chair.
“Debbie has been an incredible gift to the league and has touched the lives of thousands of members during her 25-year tenure as office manager for the organization,” the league said.
The 12th annual fundraising event will enable the Junior League of Fort Worth to invest more than $420,000 into the community this year and has raised nearly $4 million for community projects since its inception.
The organization’s 2018 community projects include Community Storehouse, Cristo Rey FW High School, Daniel Migael Foundation, Fort Worth Dream Park, Fort Worth Drowning Prevention, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Mothers’ Milk Bank of North Texas, Salvation Army, The Women’s Center, and Wings of Hope Equitherapy.
