Wildling Gets in Spirit of Season With 6th Annual Holiday Marketplace

Celebrating the holiday season, the Wildling Museum will host its 6th Annual Holiday Marketplace from noon-3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3, with a special members-only preview at 11 a.m. Admission is free. The Wildling is at 1511-B Mission Dr., Solvang.

Visitors can enjoy the Solvang Julefest parade, then head over to the museum and browse through works by a dozen local artists and crafts-people to find gifts or something special for themselves. Booths will be placed throughout the museum so the exhibitions can be enjoyed as well.

Carolers will add to the festive atmosphere, and free cider and cookies and a family photo op with the museum polar bear will round out the afternoon.

Attendees can support the arts by buying directly from the artists, while supporting a local nonprofit, dedicated to bringing the art of nature to the community.

The Wildling Museum offers visitors a unique perspective on the importance of preserving our natural heritage. Through the eyes of artists, education and field experiences, guests can renew their relationship with the wilderness and understand its fragile nature.

For more information, to volunteer and/or join as a member to support this important local arts and nature institution please visit

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
