Hello, Lincoln families and friends!

Preparations for this year’s Lincoln Winter Market have already begun and it is going to be another great event. 

You won’t want to miss it, so save the date and tell your friends!

Saturday, November 25th, 2023 from 11 AM-4 PM

Lincoln Winter Market is a vibrant fair for local artists and makers, showcasing handmade goods created by Lincoln students, their families, and community members. This popular Olympia event is a seasonal highlight. You can shop for local artisanal goods, listen to live music, sip a warm beverage, or snack on a tasty treat and participate in family activities, all while supporting the incredible programs at Lincoln Options Elementary. 


Supporting the Winter Market is rewarding and enjoyable no matter how you do it. Luckily, tasks are available for all commitments, days/times, and community interactions. Opportunities to help include promoting the market, organizing and staffing the 5th-grade fundraiser, setting up, helping during the market, and cleaning up. We’d love your help and are looking forward to working with you.


This is a great way to share your creative gifts. Each year, the Lincoln Winter Market draws hundreds of shoppers eager to support the talent and innovation of the vendors and musicians. You can apply now to join the market as a vendor. The priority deadline for applications is October 1st. 

One of the singular features of this event is the Student Market. It is a marvel to see Lincoln students embrace the opportunity to follow their inspiration and turn their inventive and entrepreneurial ideas into reality. 

Student vendor and busker applications will be available by the first week of October. In the meantime, Is your student interested in making and selling something at the market? If so, do they want to work alone or alongside classmates or friends? Do they want to showcase their skills as a busking musician? How about you?

More About the Market

This market was started by Make Olympia in 2010 and became a school-sponsored community event operating under the guidance of the Options Community Council, our school’s governing body. It is always the Saturday after Thanksgiving, located at Lincoln in the gym, cafeteria, and play shed. Vendor fees go to Lincoln’s school programs.
