Blue Genie Art Bazaar (BGAB), a beloved holiday shopping experience in Austin returns for its 20th year with four different shopping options to ensure all guests can participate safely in a time of Covid-19. For in-store shopping, customers can reserve their free tickets online before they visit for a "no wait" entry. Walk-ins are also welcome, but guests may have to wait outside if the store is at capacity. Online shoppers can either pick up their items in store or shipped anywhere in the U.S. Personal shopper and virtual shopping will also be available through the BGAB website. As always, BGAB is a family-friendly experience showcasing the hand-made work of more than 150 local and regional artisans and craftspeople. Shoppers can find one-of-a-kind, handcrafted jewelry, artwork, home goods and gifts for everyone on the shopping list.
Admission and parking are free with timed entry to keep crowds at reduced capacity. Masks are required to enter the building and guests are encouraged to respect social distancing. Cleanliness measures such as hand sanitizer, hand washing stations, and cashless transactions will all be available.
Accessibility: We strive to make our event welcoming and accessible. ADA designated parking is available in the lot. The building is wheelchair accessible; but please be advised that the aisles may be crowded during high traffic times.View Map
