Weekend-long fest in RiNo features artists, makers, music, cocktails, and food. 

Hop in your sleigh and come down to the RiNo Arts District December 7-9 to shop and sip local during at the DenverBAZAAR. According to its website, the event is the No. 1 micro-retail curator in the Rocky Mountains, which means you'll find plenty of Colorado-made, unique gifts that will look wonderful under your tree.  

"It's a vibrant market filled with outstanding local shops, creative and delicious food, and a variety of spirited drinks, all coming together to elevate and redefine the holiday shopping experience into a fun, festive party," says denverbazaar.com.
