Armadillo Christmas Bazaar meet at Bench Plaza left of entrance


Now in its 37th season, the Armadillo presents an amazing array of original work by artists and artisans, from affordable gifts to high-end art. It’s the city’s favorite shopping party, with live music and a full bar. Gift givers, art collectors and music lovers can grab a beer, dance a bit and have fun while they shop.


The 2012 event will feature more than 160 artists and artisans exhibiting their latest work. At least three music acts, local luminaries and exciting new talent, will perform each day. The Armadillo will once again be virtually across the street from the former site of its birthplace, Austin’s famed Armadillo World Headquarters.


Clay McClinton [country] will be on at Noon. 

Check out his music at


Admission is $5 weekdays before 7pm [$8 nights and weekends]

Palmer Events Center is bordered on the north by Riverside Drive, the south by Barton Springs Road, the east by South 1st Street and the west by Butler Park. 

The Palmer Events Center features an adjacent four-story 1,200-space parking garage with two entrances. The north entrance to the structure is on Riverside Drive near The Long Center and South 1st Street. The south entrance is on Barton Springs Road, between Bouldin and Dawson streets.

      Armadillo hasn't posted a map of vendors or anything yet so let's say just inside the main doors facing BARTON SPRINGS ROAD I'll try to check further and post anything I find out

      Armadillo Team sent me this kind reply Helen,

      A good place to gather would be what we call the Bench Plaza, which is just inside and to the left of the entrance. Look for a cluster of Christmas trees and a lot of park benches. Enjoy the show,
