Holiday Thieves Market Snowmen

The Holiday Thieves Market is a 50-year holiday tradition. We are proud to offer this fine art show as an opportunity for area residents to shop for those special holiday gifts. Attendees can browse the amazing ceramics, fiber, drawing, glass, jewelry, metal, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and wood items. Many of the participating artists have been involved for over 20 years!

This event will be held at the Hyatt Regency Coralville Hotel & Conference CEnter.

We will have 63 artists this year, to allow for social distancing between booths.

Please note that masks are highly encouraged at this indoor event for the safety of volunteers, attendees, and artists.
