The Mat-Su Holiday Marketplace is a one stop holiday shopping extravaganza for Wasilla and the Mat-Su Valley. This event takes place at the Menard Sports Center (44 mile Parks Highway) and gives the area an opportunity to shop for unique and one of a kind gifts, right in their neighborhood, without that long commute to Anchorage.
Artists and craftsmen will fill over 100 mini specialty shops with literally thousands of holiday gift ideas. Jewelry, furs, original artwork, fleece, pottery, etched glassware… you’ll find unique items from all around the state. No need to waste a tank of gas looking for the perfect gift! Make Santa proud this year and get all of your holiday shopping done in one warm location with lots of EASY… FREE… parking at the Mat-Su Holiday Marketplace.
There is a $5 admission charge, kids 12 and under are free, and Sunday is free to Military with ID or anyone who brings 2 cans of food for a local food bank.
