List your event

This holiday season, The Herald-Times is publishing announcements of area holiday bazaars and craft shows in a frequently updated, comprehensive online listing at HeraldTimesOnline.com/lifestyle.

Timely portions of the online list will be published in the print edition of the H-T a few times during November and December as event timing and space warrant. We are not printing one comprehensive list at the beginning of the season as we have in the past.

Area nonprofit and artisan groups are encouraged to submit short announcements, less than 100 words, about their in-person or online events where people can shop for handmade holiday gifts and other arts and crafts. Please fill out the form at HeraldTimesOnline.com/lifestyle.
