It’s the merriest shopping event of the year! The third annual Mele Kalikimaka Marketplace offers a variety of festive family activities, great food, fun make-and-take crafts, entertainment and one-stop holiday shopping—including a local gourmet gift section, an assortment of prepackaged gift baskets and pop up shops from local designers and makers, as well as year-end inventory specials from manufacturers, distributors and wholesalers. Snap a holiday selfie with Santa and Rudolph, and give back to O‘ahu’s keiki by participating in the Gingerbread Workshop with proceeds benefitting Kama‘āina Kids.
