What to expect at the holiday fair

General InfoElizabeth Ramos

Saturday's the big day! We can’t wait to see you all come out to the Indie Craft Parade Holiday Fair. Here are some final details to help make your experience the best it can be.


Where and When is the Holiday Fair?

The Holiday Fair will be located at The Greenville County Museum of Art. 420 College Street, Greenville SC 29601 The hours are 10 am to 6 pm.

Please note, this is NOT the same location as our September festival. If you go to the Huguenot Mill there will not be anyone there. Also, The Greenville County Museum of Art is one of many buildings in Heritage Green, so refer to the photos below. You can look for outdoor signs for Indie Craft Parade. If this is your first time visiting GCMA, you can enter the building from either the front or back. Both entrances will lead you to the Holiday Fair.

Where can I park? There is a large parking lot at Heritage Green. If the lot is full, there are a number of parking garages in Greenville. The closest one to GCMA is Richardson Street. Also, the Downtown Trolley runs to Heritage Green on Saturday, so you can park anywhere close to the route, and hop on for free!

Who will be there?

We will have 30 artists at the Holiday Fair. This makes it a smaller event than the September Festival, but we’ve specially picked our vendors who are excellent for Christmas shopping. So bring your list!


Will there be a line?

Probably a short one. Last year we had 1,500 attendees throughout the day, and we expect that number to increase. However, the rest of the art museum is filled with amazing exhibits—especially one for kids and a series of guided tours. So if you need to wait at all, we recommend touring the museum or elsewhere on Heritage Green.

What about food?

We’ve got some great options for you! There will be a great selection of food trucks, including Asada and Thoroughfare. We’ll also be hosting one of our favorite duos, Circa Doughnuts and Methodical Coffee. Also, GCMA has provided an eating area in case the weather is cold.


See you this weekend! We can't wait!
