The Snowport is in its fifth year, shaking Boston’s Seaport neighborhood and turning it into a magical snow globe. This magical winter wonderland is a festive outdoor opportunity for gifts, play games, view festive art and encounter plenty of surprises. The market will feature more than 100 small merchants selling unique art, jewelry, home goods, apparel and other gifts and crafts. Indulge in hot chocolate, freshly-made waffles and craft beer, as you stroll for gift giving inspiration, enjoy outdoor iceless curling, shop for you evergreen trimmings and trees at The Tree Market, and light up the night with annual holiday tree lighting, Light Up Seaport (December 1st) and the annual Menorah Lighting (December 10th). Don’t forget to wave to the Yeti.
Nov. 10-Dec. 31, seven days a week
The last thing you want to deal with this holiday season is a Black Friday crowd, mall parking, or missing shipped packages. So forgo those follies and instead treat yourself to a fun shopping experience this year. Shop local for your holiday gift simplicities or splurges at some of Boston's best holiday markets. These spots are not only decked out in holiday splendor (hello hot cocoa and twinkle lights), but you’ll leave knowing you supported small businesses by buying gifts that stand out from everything else under the tree. When you’re done, check out one of the many Christmas events in Boston or get some more cheer from a Boston Christmas lights display.
