Abstract: In this paper, we show that if the Tychonoff power $ X^\omega$ of a quasi-regular space $ X$ is Baire, then its Vietoris hyperspace $ 2^X$ is also Baire. We also provide two examples to show (i) the converse of this result does not hold in general, and (ii) the Baireness of finite powers of a space is insufficient to guarantee the Baireness of its hyperspace.
