The Statehouse Convention Center in downtown Little Rock.

It's a sad day for shoppers everywhere.

Junior League of Little Rock (JLLR) recently announced it is canceling this year's Holiday House and postponing the 30th annual celebration that was originally scheduled for November 2020.

“We were looking forward to another memorable year, however, with the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic, this decision is the only responsible solution," JLLR president Casey Rockwell said. "The health and safety of our volunteers, vendors, guests and the entire Little Rock community remains our highest priority.”  

Holiday House has become a beloved shopping event for early Christmas shoppers all over central Arkansas. It's known for hosting nearly 200 merchants and more than 14,000 shoppers each year. Since 1990, Holiday House has raised more than $5 million for JLLR’s community service projects including Stuff the Bus, Nightingales, Kota Camp, Little Readers Rock and Boosters & Big Rigs. The event generates a significant portion of all funding for JLLR’s community projects.
