The event also helps to extend Small Business Saturday, a shopping event used to promote local businesses the Saturday after Thanksgiving, Cavender said.
"Many of these vendors are small business owners and entrepreneurs," he said. "We're proud to have built this medium that helps them get their products out there."
Local choir groups have been invited to sing Christmas carols at the event, Cavender said.
A Christmas tree decorated with ornaments made by children with the East End Family Resource Center's after-school program has been erected at the bazaar. The tree will remain lit throughout the holidays.
Everyone is encouraged to bring a Christmas ornament to hang on the tree, he said.
Free parking will be available at the Religious Coalition for Community Renewal and West Virginia Health Right building on Washington Street East near its intersection with Ruffner Avenue.
About 150 individuals came to the bazaar each Saturday it was open during the fall, Cavender said. Vendors grossed about $12,000 total in sales, he said.
"We thought that was pretty good for the pilot season," Cavender said.
He estimates 200 to 250 people will turn out Saturday.
"We're really excited for this event and we think it will be a success," Savage said.
Events and activities will be added at the bazaar once it reopens in April, he said.
A small library box where people can drop off and pick up books will be built at the bazaar, Savage said. A sandbox for children may also be added.
