Holiday Mart is the city's oldest and biggest shopping extravaganza of the year. With more than 200 specialty retailers and more over 20,000 shoppers, there is no other holiday event like it.
Proceeds benefit the Junior League of Kansas City Missouri and its benefactors. Since 1988, Holiday Mart has helped raise nearly $11 million for community projects and the Junior League's mission of promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women and improving the community.
