Welcome the holidays with a cup of good cheer and snap a pic with Saint Nicholas at Maymont’s outdoor Merry Market. Experience the magic of the season in a historic setting draped in fresh evergreens and twinkling lights.
Shop for the perfect gift among 40+ local artisans and small businesses, while the kids make their own gifts and decorations at the crafts tent. Pick up something tasty from the festive holiday bar and food vendors to enjoy around the cozy fire pits, while an a cappella vocal group and a jazz combo set the mood. Make lasting memories with a new holiday tradition at Maymont.
Volunteers are needed both days of the event for a variety of roles, including event set up, check-in, bar/ABC (21+ only), craft tent assistance, St. Nick support, and traffic flow assistance at the Mansion.
