Shop for Everyone on Your Nice List at the Downtown Holiday Market

With the holiday season quickly approaching, there’s nothing quite like the Downtown Holiday Market, which is celebrating its 16th annual marketplace this year. With more than 70 vendors and exhibitions, this display encompasses two entire blocks of F Street NW. 

Visitors to the Downtown Holiday Market can find gifts for everyone on their shopping list this season or simply enjoy the music, light displays, food, and other highlights of the marketplace. You’re sure to feel the magic of holiday cheer with each bite and every buy, whether you stick to the market itself or enjoy the nearby DC amenities—like the Smithsonian American Art Museum and Carmine’s—while you’re there. 

This year’s Downtown Holiday Market offers unprecedented family-friendly festive fun, complete with holiday films and musical acts on the central Jumbotron screen and a unique mixed reality experience interspersed amongst the marketplace. Shoppers will find an assortment of artwork, clothing and accessories, artisan goods, jewelry, and other gifts ready to be wrapped and handed to the people you love. 

Take a break with a treat from Alexa’s Empanadas or Migue’s Mini Donuts to refuel between purchases or conclude your visit with a meal as you plan your next trip to the Downtown Holiday Market—you can’t help but come back a second time or more often!
