2018 WES:CC Holiday Market

Saturday, Dec. 8th
5:00pm - 9:00pm
BUS (Bar Under the Sun) 702 N. Chaparral St., CC, TX

Join us for a festive evening of shopping, food, and, family fun at the 2018 Holiday Gift Market presented by the Women’s Entrepreneur Society of Corpus Christi. We will be celebrating in style with 30+ of the city’s most talented women-owned small shops–including original art, handmade goods, holiday gifts, and more. Food trucks, Santa photo ops, children caroling, and MORE will all be taking place at BUS throughout the evening! Admission is FREE–so come downtown, see the lights, and support your local small businesses!

Please RSVP on our Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/events/2014923595464703/

We are incredibly proud to be partnering with the Coastal Bend Salvation Army, helping do the most good for women, children, and families in our community. This year, we will be holding a Toy Drive benefiting their Angel Tree Program. The first 100+ attendees who bring an unwrapped, new toy will receive a custom WES:CC Holiday Gift Market tote bag. 10+ of these bags will be stuffed with gifts from our members: gift cards, coupons, small gift items from participating shops. The gift bags will be randomly placed and given out during the market to attendees that donate a toy -- it's the luck of the draw!

Our community partner, the Corpus Christi chapter of the American Advertising Federation (AAF) will also be providing a gift wrapping station, photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus (of course!) and they will wrap up the evening with a Combat Karaoke competition for the ‘Shop Til You Mic Drop’ After Party! RSVP on their Facebook page here.

We are excited to have carolers from Bishop Garriga Middle Preparatory School joining us to sing carols during the market as well! Bishop Garriga Middle Preparatory School is a place where academic achievement is valued. But it is also a place where the individual is genuinely loved and respected, where young people develop a positive sense of self, where they recognize their potential and use their gifts and talents for the benefit of the common good.

Our Sponsors

A huge THANK YOU goes out to our sponsors for this event! We are incredibly grateful for these businesses who are helping make our market top of the line, and something that strives to bring our community closer together, while helping support our small business community. Thank you!
