The holiday season is a time filled with many great traditions. One event that has been added to many people’s list in Elmhurst is the Holiday Market, now in its third year. It’s happening this Friday and Saturday, November 8 and 9, at the Wilder Mansion, 211 South Prospect Avenue in Elmhurst, a historic 1868 venue that amazes with over 9,000 square feet of elegance.

RGL Marketing for the Arts, Inc. and its founder Roz Long have brought together over 50 one-of-a-kind vendors to sell their work amidst this beautiful setting. Come find that perfect gift, whether it’s jewelry, clothing, a hat, a scarf, a handbag, artwork, seasonal ware, or gourmet food, and support the arts and your local artists while you’re at it!

Stop by on Friday from 4 - 9pm, and help the United Community Concerns Association provide food for families in need in the Elmhurst School District 205 by purchasing a $20 ticket that includes a glass of wine and appetizers from Cafe Amano. Get your tickets at the door with cash, check, or credit card. Saturday, the market will be open from 11am - 4pm, and admission is free! Presented by Edward Jones Investments and sponsored by the Elmhurst Park District, and produced by RGL Marketing for the Arts, Inc.

While there, feel free to explore the 17.3 acres of Wilder Park, an historic venue purchased by the Park District in 1921. Besides the impressive Wilder Mansion itself, the park boasts exquisite formal gardens, a picnic area, tennis courts, a conservatory, a recreation building, horseshoe pits, playground equipment, and a veterans memorial, and is home to the Elmhurst Public Library, the Elmhurst Art Museum, and the Lizzadro Museum.
