Local food trucks will also be on site to satiate your hunger needs.
**Updated 11/21/2020: The 2020 Hollyday Market will be open on Saturday, November 28th, from 10am to 4pm. We are aware of the current COVID threat level for Arapahoe County and are following all guidelines and recommendations for the market. The market will be held on Saturday as planned! Please see the COVID section below for details on how we are taking precautions to ensure your safety at the market.
Tickets are not required for entry. There will be one entrance, so please follow signs. Entry will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to COVID we will be limiting the number of guests within the market at one time to 75. We will be using a one-out/one-in policy if we reach capacity. Please do not enter through any other areas around the parking lot other than the entrance. The market will follow a one-way path, so please follow signage. Please do not exit the market through any area other than the exit.
The market will be held rain or shine (or snow!), unless extreme weather conditions are present. In the event of extreme weather, the market will be pushed back to the following weekend, on December 5th, at the same time.
Well-behaved dogs are welcome at the market if on a leash. A water bowl will be available near the free hot chocolate and cider station. Please be sure to pick up after your fur baby.

Restrooms will be available inside the church.
Please be aware of the following protocols for the 2020 Hollyday Market:
The market will be limited to 75 guests at a time. This is first come, first served. Please note that if the market is full at the time you arrive, you may have to wait for entry. It will be handled as one-out, one-in. While waiting, please ensure you are 6 feet apart from those around you in line.
Masks are required for entry and must be worn at all times. There will be no exceptions to this rule. Masks must cover both the mouth and nose.
Food and drinks will be available near the market exit. To minimize guests having to pull their masks down, please no food or drinks within the market, unless partaking in samples from a vendor. If sampling, please ensure you are at least 6 feet away from other guests and vendors.
Please maintain social distancing throughout the market at all times. Per COVID guidelines, please try to limit those that you walk around the market with to your immediate household.
Vendor booths will be spaced out, with at least 6 feet between each booth. No more than one group of guests per booth if possible please.
Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout the market for your use. Please use it often, especially before touching any items within a booth, and after making payment.
It is at each vendor's discretion as to whether they will accept cash and/or credit. We are encouraging the use of contactless payment when possible.
For this market, the free kids crafts will be provided near the exit for the children to take home. They will receive a bag with goodies after turning in their elf scavenger hunt sheet.
Photos may be taken with your phone of your child with Santa Claus. Santa will be wearing a mask, and seated in a chair. Your child will stand to the side of him for the photo, rather than sitting on his lap. Children must wear their masks.
You will be asked to check in at the entrance desk. We will have a QR code for you to sign in and provide contact details. These will be used for contact tracing if necessary, as well as to contact winners of the raffle prizes. Please be sure to bring your smartphone for this purpose. If you don't have this option, we will have some paper forms you can fill out instead. To ensure we can get as many guests into the market as possible, please fill out this form while waiting in line if possible, to speed things along at the entrance.
If you are sick or showing any symptoms, please stay home.
Any vendors showing symptoms will be asked to stay home. Vendors will have their temperatures checked the morning of the market.
