We invite you to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Christmas Roundup: A Holiday Market. This iconic event helps shoppers ring in the holiday season, while also raising funds to support the educational programs of the Amarillo Museum of Art (AMoA). One-hundred percent of the proceeds from this fundraiser stay local, enriching lives around the Panhandle through exhibitions, education and collections. Christmas Roundup attracts over 6,000 shoppers, 150 merchants and takes the efforts of over 50 volunteers each year. Mark your calendar for November 1-3, 2019. The celebration will include shopping, cocktails, entertainment, door prizes, raffles and a silent auction.
Here’s a sneak preview of events we are planning for the weekend:
$8 SHOPPING TICKET is good for the entire weekend and all events. Return as many times as you would like!
RED’S EARLY BIRD SHOPPING EVENT (Friday, November 1, 10 AM to Noon) will kick off the weekend with refreshments, holiday music and a special gift for the first 100 shoppers.
