An open letter to ‘Boston Winter’ holiday market chalet vendors:

Thank you for being a part of Boston Winter this year! Your participation and presence contributes to the magic and overall experience of the event and we greatly appreciate your involvement.

Recently Boston Garden Development Corp. made the decision to terminate our business relationship with Millennial Exhibitions (MX) and its affiliate, the subcontractor responsible for producing the holiday market. In addition to a legal complaint which we filed this week, our questions about MX’s ability and credentials to properly run the market have grown dramatically. We were equally concerned to hear from many of you recently who voiced your concerns and your disappointment in MX, and that company’s ability to run a successful holiday market that works for you. For those who have been affected, we are sorry that they let you down and we share your frustration.

As we turn the page on 2017 and plan for the future, we would like to hear from you on what improvements could be made on past holiday market operations. From the very beginning, integrating the small business community was a focal point of our efforts to reinvigorate City Hall Plaza, and, with any collaborative event, all parties should have the opportunity to be successful.

We look forward to hearing from you. Please contact us at

Thank you.

Boston Garden Development Corp.
