the night market and holiday exhibit

The MakeShift Union is excited to bring a festive spirit and a lot of handmade to The Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences this holiday season. Imagine a sparkling cozy outdoor market featuring over 50 handmade vendors, fire pits, carolers, and most importantly, pictures (and gift requests) with the jolly man himself. The Night Market will also feature locally crafted beer and food, hot chocolate and s'mores for guests to enjoy. Inside the gallery, there will be a handful of featured handmade goods that will be available for shopping from November 26th-January 21st. On November 26th (Small Business Saturday) the indoor & outdoor markets will be taking place simultaneously at the stunning LBIF campus from 12pm - 8pm. We invite you to check back often as more details are released about this merry meeting of all things handmade and beautiful. 

**Santa will be visiting the LBIF Night Market between 4-8pm for pictures**
