The 16th annual Print Bazaar on Cherokee kicks off this Saturday December 2nd — and the street has again outdone itself with this year's market! Head to the Cherokee Street between 11 AM and 6PM to shop from more than 170 local & regional artists — offering prints, paintings and photographs, screen-printed clothing, greeting cards and one-of-a-kind-art.
Plan Your Print Bazaar Day
There are two main market hubs which feature holiday beverages and more than 20-30 artists under one roof: The Golden Record @ 2720 Cherokee — sponsored by Swade & Bomb Door @ 2623 Cherokee — sponsored by Pulitzer Arts Foundation. You can also pick up passports/maps for the day at both locations or at STL Stylehouse.
The artists at this year's event include storied STL printmakers like Dan Zettwoch and Brian Lathan, along with art students and vendors brand new to the bazaar! One of the new additions this year is none other than Son Volt frontman Jay Farrar who will be slinging prints from his personal collection of 25 years of Son Volt concert posters! Read about what he's bringing in the Riverfront Times.
You can get a preview of what each artists will bring to their table at cherokeeprintbazaar.com/artists. Not able to make the event - or missed a venue? The artist list will be live on our site until the end of December. Circle back after the Bazaar and shop from the artists with online shopping options!
Don't Forget: Your Shopping List, Cash or Debit Card & Walking Shoes
Between Cherokee Print Bazaar, the street's brick and mortar retail shops and food & drink establishments, you're bound to find something for everyone on your list. Plant lover? Head to Flowers & Weeds! Got a cowboy for a cousin? Swing on by Carrillo Western Wear!
And of course there's a mountain of options for art lovers, with 170+ participating Print Bazaar artists to choose from. The vast majority of our newfangled vendors accept card transactions but we recommend bringing cash or your debit card just in case. (Find a list of ATM locations in the passport to be picked up on the street on Saturday!)
Saturday's event features 1 mile of shopping and art. If you've already clocked your steps for the day and find that your dogs are barking, hitch a ride on the free trolley that will be making the rounds up and down the street. Flag the trolley down at any corner between Louisana and Deminil, or wait at the designated spots at Compton, Nebraska and Iowa.
Pro Tip: Get Stamps to Win a Prize!
In your passport, you'll find blank pages where you can collect stamps from each artist or venue. Collect 50 or more stamps and head to The Golden Record! The first 30 people that collect 50 stamps will win a prize they can select at the 2720 info desk.
