Makers Arcade Holiday Fair at the Port of San Diego returns to the Broadway Pier for the 6th year – Saturday, Dec. 3 and Sunday, Dec. 4 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The popular annual shopping event will host over 110 local makers for a seasonal shopping experience with photo displays, gourmet food, live music, cocktails, workshops and much more!

“We are excited to put together another festive holiday event,” said Kristin Dinnis, Makers Arcade co-owner and event coordinator. “This is our favorite time of the year to both shop small and support local creatives and most importantly the small businesses in our community, while also enjoying the holiday spirit, San Diego-style.”

The pier will be decked out with fun holiday décor and creating a very special opportunity to shop while enjoying waterfront views.

There will also be art installations, a game zone for adults and kids to enjoy, along with vintage holiday trailers by The Holidays, serving as fun photo backdrops.

Among the festivities include live music both days by Nathan & Jessie, Morning Glory Family Band, The Barnacle Boys, Erica Davis, and Puerto.

Guests can also enjoy gourmet food trucks like Dang Brother Pizza and sweet treats like Rikka Fika Coffee + Toast, craft cocktails topped off with Topo Chico, wine from Sipwell, and beer & kombucha sponsored by Sierra Nevada.

The first 100 attendees in line will receive a complimentary gift bag upon entry. You’ll also find a Kids Area with games and interactive art, as well as a Game Area for adults (and kids) on the deck of the pier, along with a free “make & take” station where attendees can create their own holiday wreaths.

Admission is $7, which includes a free make & take holiday wreath. For tickets and more information, visit, and follow along on Instagram at @makersarcade.
