Southern Christmas Show In Charlotte: November 8-18
51 years and still going strong.... the 51st annual Southern Christmas Show returns to Charlotte this week on Thursday, November 8th and runs through Sunday, November 18th. This year's theme is "A Fashionable Christmas."
I've looked forward to the Southern Christmas Show every year since moving to Charlotte and attending my first one 20 years ago now. I know Christmas is literally "just around the corner" once the show arrives in Charlotte. The Southern Christmas Show is the largest such holiday show in the country and one of the most popular.
The Southern Christmas show is an annual tradition for many Charlotteans to "kick off" their holiday season, as it's become mine. 100,000+ visitors, both local and from all around the South, begin their holiday buying season by attending.
If you're looking for holiday decorating ideas, ornaments, gifts, art, crafts, food... with the Southern Christmas show featuring almost 500 merchants and exhibitors displaying their wares, this is the place to go! You really will find something for every taste and budget. I know I'll always find that one-of-a-kind gift I'm looking for, for someone special on my Christmas list. Another thing I love to do is wander from booth to booth tasting all of the great holiday goodies!
Three tips to enhance your experience:
I like to arrive in time for opening for easier parking and smaller crowds. If you go on a Sunday, early in the morning is the best time to come before the post-brunch crowd arrives. Busloads of people come from all over the South to attend this show so be prepared for crowds.
Wear comfortable shoes--you'll be covering a lot of territory at the Expo.
- Bring a tote bag or two (or three) to carry your purchases.
