Holiday Market is Back (& In Person!)

Join us November 14th from 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM as we once again transform our indoor arena into a vibrant, experiential holiday marketplace. Come gather, connect, and celebrate in this intimate and specialized shopping setting with a group of diversified local artisans, craftsmen, and businesses, while also raising awareness for High Hopes’ equine assisted services.

There is something for everyone on your list with scarves and wraps from local spinners, handcrafted soaps and skincare, pet accessories, floral design, upcycled finds, wellness teas and tonics, unique handmade jewelry and delectable sweet treats. For the foodies out there, all the best food trucks around will be on-site as well as a holiday beer garden with local craft beers, wines and spirits! Entry is free with a donation of non-perishable food item(s) to the Shoreline Soup Kitchens & Pantries.

For the safety of all our guests, masks must be worn by all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, inside all indoor areas including the arena.
