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.
