The two-day event kicks off with the Preview Party on Wednesday, Nov. 19, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Tickets bought in advance are $55 and include  a “Taste of New Canaan” featuring local restaurant specialties and cocktails.

Thursday hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and admission is $10. Breakfast will be provided by Zumbachs and Baldanza Natural Market Café and lunch will be provided by Tony's Deli.

“The Holiday Market has been a favorite fundraiser for the YWL’s membership and has consistently raised half the annual grant amount needed to support our recipient charities,” Amy Fields, the league president said in a statement. “We are proud to be a destination for holiday shoppers and are grateful for the support from our participating sponsors, vendors, attendees and the town. It’s a great opportunity to shop for a good cause.”

Many favorite vendors will be returning this year along with an exciting new selection. Highlights include The Pink Mink, Just Over the Top, Moe’s Monkeys, Sail to Sable and Shell Stories.

New this year, the league will have a silent auction during the Preview Party including golf outings at Winged Foot and Fishers Island, a night out on Broadway and an overnight stay at a private, luxury apartment in New York City.
