New York’s Historic Landmark and Transportation Hub Welcomes Back its Celebrated Holiday Fair With Dozens of Unique Vendors

Holiday Fair Returns from Monday, Nov. 14 to Saturday, Dec. 24

Presented by SL Green Realty Corp and

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) announced the return of New York City’s longest-running indoor holiday fair to Grand Central after a two-year pause. The Holiday Fair this year – presented by SL Green Realty Corp and – will run for six weeks in the Vanderbilt Hall, beginning Monday, Nov. 14. This year’s fair will feature dozens of unique local vendors and small businesses with a focus on quality craftmanship and products made in New York and the United States. Vendors will sell a diverse mix of giftable items, including men’s and women’s clothing and accessories, original artwork, jewelry, holiday keepsakes and distinctive home décor, self-care products, and endless varieties of handcrafted goods. 

The return of the fair reinforces the city’s progress in retail recovery and upswing overall. It coincides with Metro-North’s continuing ridership growth and a returning abundance of foot traffic through Grand Central Terminal. Grand Central continues to usher in locals, commuters, and visitors in growing numbers each month, and expects an increase of visitors with the return of the fair. 

“Just a few months ago we announced new tenants coming to Grand Central, including the well-known City Winery, and today we are happy to announce the return of the Grand Central Holiday Fair,” said President of Metro-North Railroad and Interim President of the Long Island Rail Road Catherine Rinaldi. “We are thrilled to bring back this enjoyable New York holiday tradition, which showcases the skilled craftsmanship of local vendors and is a sign of New York’s continuing retail recovery.”

The Holiday Fair runs Monday, Nov. 14 through Saturday, Dec. 24, and will operate Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Sundays, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Christmas Eve from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Holiday Fair will be closed for Thanksgiving.
