Since 1933, the Junior League of El Paso, Inc. has returned more than $6 million to the City of El Paso through its service projects, programs, and community grants. “A Christmas Fair”, is the League’s primary fundraising event. It is staffed and implemented solely by trained volunteers allowing the Junior League of El Paso to maximize its financial contributions and help make El Paso a better place to live for all of its citizens.
This annual shopping gift market, has officially kicked off the holiday season in El Paso for the past 45 years. The event, recognized as an El Paso tradition, is staged with over 220 merchants who contribute to the festivities with great items for sale, and an average of 15,000 shoppers.
Every region of the country is represented in this holiday fantasyland, with El Paso receiving benefits which impact our community from the event’s proceeds. “A Christmas Fair“, the League’s primary fundraising event, has supported more than 100 worthwhile programs throughout its history.
“A Christmas Fair” 2019 will be held November 1-3, 2019 at the Judson F. Williams Convention & Performing Arts Center. In addition to the fabulous shopping, the Fair will also feature a myriad of special events with delicious holiday fare, fabulous auctions, and photographs with Santa for kids of all ages, and an atmosphere of wonder and delight.
