Known as the Junior League of Columbia Holiday Market, this festive event takes place annually within the South Carolina State Fairgrounds.

The four-day shopping event was started with the aim to raise more than $250,000, which is used to support the mission and vision of the Junior League to strengthen the health and well-being of children and families in the Midlands.
