Event Details

Holiday Happening: It’s A Wonderful Life
Junior League of Lubbock
Lubbock Memorial Civic Center
1501 Mac Davis Lane


November 15th – 19th

As November breezes in, so does the cherished tradition of heralding the holiday season with the Junior League of Lubbock. With a rich history of 42 years, we’ve shared joy, shopping sprees, and heartwarming festivities. This year, as we step into our 43rd annual Holiday Happening, we’re bubbling with excitement to celebrate with each of you!

Beyond the shopping and merriment lies the heart of Holiday Happening—fueling community projects. Having raised over $7 million, we’ve touched lives across the South Plains through initiatives like South Plains Food2Kids, Kids in the Kitchen, and SPARK, alongside supporting local entities like Hope Lodge, Ronald McDonald House, and the Children’s Advocacy Center.

Please check out all of 2023’s sponsors! This event would not be possible without the generous support of our community and our sponsors!

As we revel in the onset of the holiday season, we’re thrilled to share this journey with you, cherishing our shared past while eagerly envisioning innovative ways to embrace the festive days ahead.
