Our Mission

Strengthen, promote and grow the Holiday Markets industry throughout North America.

We do so by inspiring and connecting the different participants in the industry, and providing useful tools for planning, developing and operating the markets. The North American Holiday Markets Council is a non-profit status association comprised of Holiday Markets organizers and event planners, venues, traders, and industry service providers.

Through this forum our Vision is to be a catalyst for expanding the adoption of Holiday Markets by city squares, public parks and private venues, hence creating festive holiday destinations that enchant and delight their respective communities.
