About KalamaTopia

KalamaTopia might sound familiar.  In 2014 and 2015 Downtown Kalamazoo Inc. hosted KalamaTopia on the main Kalamazoo Mall.  And, then in 2018, after a 2 year hiatus, the event was hosted again on the North Kalamazoo Mall.  And now, it is a Kalamazoo Holiday Tradition that is here to stay! 


 KalamaTopia is a Friday happy hour of celebrating all things made by small businesses.  Embracing the cold, there will be tents, heaters, and hot and cold (adult) beverages brewed right here in Kalamazoo.  This event will feature artists and merchandise vendors (almost like a Chriskindlemart style) that specialize in anything made in Kalamazoo County as well as Michigan.   It is designed as an expo where vendor booth tables will line the Kalamazoo Mall from E. Michigan Avenue to Eleanor Street The event is free to attend.   


We're always looking for extra hands, interested in volunteering?
