WHY DO IS THERE A $5 FEE TO attend THE MARKET?
The $5 entrance fee goes towards infrastructure, security, entertainment and other production costs associated with hosting a four weekend event, the goal of which is to provide vendors and attendees alike with a unique shopping experience. Additionally, the Denver Flea reinvests a significant portion of the fee into RMMFI, a non profit micro loan program which directly supports many of the vendors you can visit at the Union Station Holiday Market.

Limited parking is available near Union Station via paid parking lots and metered street parking, so we suggest calling a Lyft Shared Ride.

what should I wear?
Since we live in Colorado and the Holiday Market is in fact, outside, be sure to don your finest - and warmest - winter layers to stay cozy while you’re perusing the booths!
why is the market outside?
The Union Station Holiday Market is held outside on the Plaza of Denver Union Station to create a traditional winter holiday market similar to those found at Bryant Park in NYC and across Europe during this time of year.
CAN I bring my dog?
We love dogs, however, because of the crowds, we do not encourage you to bring them.
