Midtown Houston’s Mistletoe Market is an annual holiday celebration and destination market. This high-energy NYC-style holiday-inspired market is located in the heart of Midtown Houston at Bagby Park, an urban park space surrounded by a walkable community, hi-rise living, and vibrant nightlife. The market showcases a curated selection of more than 20 vendors, artisans, and performers, all inspired by the season. Guests can enjoy shopping, food, craft activities, music, and more at this pet and family-friendly market.
This year, our theme is “Holidays Outside of the Box” because we love unusual opportunities to create unique art and be a part of that, especially around the holiday season. Additionally, you can come and take your family photos with us at one of our beautifully designed holiday backdrops.
Midtown Houston has been a catalyst in supporting art. Our community was designated as a State of Texas Cultural Arts & Entertainment District in 2012 and is known for its many attractions, including picturesque park spaces, long-standing arts organizations, and national award-winning public art.
This event is hosted and underwritten by the Cultural Arts and Entertainment District Committee.
Sign Wrap Day – In preparation for the event, we will wrap the iconic Midtown letters in a holiday-themed design, creating a perfect backdrop for this seasonal celebration! Join us on Tuesday, November 29th at 9:30am. Want to know what the artwork will reveal? Hint – there’s no place like Gnome!
