- Centrally located in a major transit hub in Midtown Manhattan
- Thousands of daily visitors
- Indoor, climate-controlled space
- 24-hour on-site security
- Socially distant compliant design and layout
- Frequent and extensive cleaning in compliance with state and federal government hygiene protocols.

The Holiday Fair traditionally presents an exceptional mix of handmade products including art, accessories, home goods, toys, jewelry, bath and body products, and men’s, women’s, and children’s apparel. In recent years vendors not only sold high volumes of product, but also landed wholesale accounts with major retailers, sold pieces to museums, broadened their retail client bases, and were profiled on local and national television.
The Metropolitan Transit Authority, Metro-North Railroad, and Jones Lang LaSalle are committed to ensuring that the 2020 Holiday Fair is a safe and enjoyable experience for all. The safety and well-being of visitors, vendors, and Grand Central Terminal staff is always our top priority.
