The Blue Genie Art Bazaar (BGAB) is an annual four-week holiday shopping event featuring handmade artwork, jewelry and gifts from approximately 200 regional and local Austin artists. In addition to shopping among unique gifts and creations, the bazaar presents a range of activities and live music. Celebrating 17 years in Austin and its second year at a new location on Airport Boulevard, BGAB is a family-friendly experience where shoppers can browse in a hassle-free environment with centralized checkout. Parking and admission are free; valet parking will be available on weekends and opening night for $5. Refreshments and bar also available daily.
Not only is this a great place to shop, but you can also attend their weekly themed nights: Make-A-Wish Mondays where 10% of that days proceeds go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Tuesday Craft Nights, Wednesday evenings featuring live music from local artists, Thursday Artist Nights where visitors have the opportunity to hear from participating artists, and lastly, Holiday Film Fridays.
Community Support: Blue Genie Art Bazaar supports the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central & South Texas via “Make-a-Wish Mondays” when 10% of profits every Monday throughout the bazaar goes to the charity.
