Junior League of El Paso’s 43rd Annual A Christmas Fair Returns, Wishing “Feliz Navidad Y’All”

The Holiday Season kicks off early and the Junior League of El Paso wants everyone to have a “Feliz Navidad Y’All” at their A Christmas Fair 2016.

The Junior League of El Paso, Inc., (JLEP) will host its 43rd annual A Christmas Fair on Friday, November 4th through Sunday, November 6th, at the Judson F. Williams Convention Center, 1 Civic Center Plaza,

The event is now a tradition in El Paso with three days of shopping and fun. A Christmas Fair will feature more than 200 merchants from all over the country who offer top-of-the line clothing, arts, crafts, gifts and gourmet treats.

Enjoy entertainment during fair hours, a raffle for a chance to win amazing prizes from Susan Eisen Fine Jewelry & Watches and our other sponsors, and as always, a chance for kids to have their picture taken with Santa.

The event’s popularity has grown over the years and more than 15,000 people are expected to attend this year.

Since 1933, the Junior League of El Paso, Inc., has returned more than $5 million to the community of El Paso through its service projects, programs and community grants. The annual A Christmas Fair is JLEP’s primary fundraising event. It is organized, built, staged and cleaned up solely by JLEP volunteers, which allows JLEP to put every dollar raised back into the community.
