HOURS OF OPERATION

Back for its 5th year, "Hallmarket: A Hallmark Art Fair" will showcase the creative talents of Hallmark employees.  The art fair will be held Saturday, September 27 from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. on the Crown Center Square.  More than 100 Hallmark artists, photographers, sculptors, designers and photo stylists will display and offer their work for sale.  These pieces are the personal work of the participants, created outside of their jobs with Hallmark.  Hallmarket is a chance for everyone to experience the creative passion that flows through the Hallmark community, whether it is purchasing a piece of art, admiring the wealth of talent or connecting personally with so many creative and fascinating people.

In planning your trip to the Hallmark Visitors Center, we recommend parking in the garage on the East side of Grand on the Blue Level.  Enter to the right of the Security Office and take the elevator to the 3rd floor and follow the signs.  If you park on the west side of Grand, you will need to take the esclators to the 3rd floor of Crown Center and walk through Halls on Grand.  Once you pass through Halls, turn right, go through the glass double doors, take an immediate left outside, past The American Restaurant to the end of the covered walkway.  Turn right and follow the sidewalk past Kaleidoscope and the Hallmark Visitors Center will be on your right.

Individuals with disabilities may park on the south side of 25th street in the designated Hallmark Visitors Center/Kaleidoscope parking spots.  You must come into The Hallmark Visitors Center to get a parking permit to display on your dash.
