From how to decorate your table for the holidays to guided holiday art lessons, the Oakland Holiday Market brings something for everyone. 

The Market will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday at 304 Holly Street in downtown Oakland, located about 50 miles south of Oxford.

Mahaley Hames of Oakland, known for her creative décor at The Irby House in Oakland, will lead workshops on how to decorate your table for the holidays. Sessions will be presented at 10 a.m. and again at noon.

Art instructor Gay Lynn Haynes of Oakland will offer Holiday Art Classes in which participants will leave with a holiday painting they have created under her guidance.  These classes require pre-registration and will cost $15 per person for supplies.
