The University of Wyoming Holiday Market will return Friday, Dec. 1, with a new sponsor and at a new venue.

Staff Senate sponsors the market, which runs from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. in the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts. The event is free and open to the public.

“Staff Senate is pleased to host the Holiday Market this year,” says Rachel Stevens, Staff Senate president. “We know that it’s a very popular event both on campus and in the community, so we’re happy to do our part. We have a great lineup of vendors, and we know that visitors at the market will not be disappointed by the quality and variety of local and handmade items that are offered.”

More than 50 vendors will offer for sale a wide assortment of products, including baked goods, home décor, handmade craft and holiday items, clothing, jewelry and children’s books. The market also will feature door prizes and refreshments.

In addition, Staff Senate will sell place settings of vintage UW catering china. All proceeds will support the UW Staff Scholarship fund.

“This is a one-time opportunity to own a piece of UW history and support a good cause at the same time,” Stevens says.

Free parking will be available in “A” and “C” spaces in the lots directly north and east of the Performing Arts Center from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Metered parking also will be available. In addition, attendees can use the free shuttle service. For more information about campus parking and shuttle services, visit

UW President Laurie Nichols has granted two hours of release time for UW employees to attend the market. The scheduling of release time should be a collaborative discussion between employee and supervisor to ensure the effective and efficient operation of the unit.
