The Armadillo Christmas Bazaar began as a special event at Austin’s famous Armadillo World Headquarters (AWHQ). The Armadillo World Headquarters was the inspiration or origin of many local icons including Austin City Limits, Threadgills, and the South Austin Museum of Popular Culture, along with the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar.
The Austin Creative Alliance is funded in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division and by grants from Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Creative Alliance also receives generous in-kind support from CreateAustin, and Time Warner Cable News. We are also grateful for the ongoing support and participation of our members and patrons.
