Finnish Christmas Bazaar

The Finnish Christmas Bazaar has been a beloved Washington DC holiday tradition for over five decades. This annual event has been organized on the Saturday prior to Thanksgiving, from 11am-3pm. At the Bazaar, you can join us for a taste of Christmas and find unique, imported holiday gifts from the Land of Santa Claus. You can meet old and new friends and enjoy a cup of coffee or hot glogg with gingerbread or pulla at the Christmas Cafe. Visiting the Bazaar makes a great opportunity to check some gifts off your list and stock up on Finnish treats, Christmas decorations, arts & crafts and books for the holidays!

You will have the opportunity to shop for:                                                         
• Finnish Design and Artwork
• Baked Goods and Rye Products
• Finnish Chocolate & Candy
• Christmas Decor, Arts and Craft
• Used Books for Children & Adults
• And much, much more!
