Blue Genie Art Bazaar Launches May Market, New Spring Shopping Event
April 30 @ 10:00 am - 8:00 pm
The creators of Blue Genie Art Bazaar (BGAB) present the May Market, a new spring art and shopping experience that, much like its award-winning, annual holiday event, brings the best of Central Texas artists and their work to the Greater Austin community under one expansive roof. The new event will take place at 6100 Airport Boulevard, Austin TX, 78752 every Friday – Sunday, April 30 – May 31, 2021, from 10 a.m – 8 p.m with a bonus shopping day on Memorial Day. The majority of the 100+ exhibitors are women artists or women-owned businesses. The May Market is an exciting new destination for one-of-a-kind gifts for spring milestones such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduations, anniversaries, weddings and more.
For 20 years the Blue Genie Art Bazaar has showcased local and regional artisans, beginning as a small, eclectic East Austin pop-up and growing into an annual holiday shopping event with more than 200 exhibitors. When the ongoing pandemic restrictions caused many other spring markets and arts events to cancel in 2021, BGAB saw an opportunity to create something new and expand their long-standing mission of supporting local artists. Organizers hope that the May Market can become another annual arts tradition in the community.
Like the holiday Bazaar, the new event is a free, family-friendly experience showcasing hand-made items including jewelry, home decor, clothing, pottery, and fine art under one roof with centralized checkout. While many of the customer favorites from past Bazaars will participate in the May Market, there will also be a new crop of local artists for shoppers to discover.
The May Market will follow local and CDC recommendations regarding social distancing and mask wearing. Check the Blue Genie Art Bazaar’s website and social channels to stay up to date with latest information this spring.
