From its beginnings in 1967, the Southern Christmas Show has become a holiday tradition for families and friends throughout the region. One of the best-attended consumer shows in the nation, it annually attracts over 100,000 show guests ready to start the holiday buying season.

Show Highlights
Show highlights include a Dickens-style village with over 30 shops, holiday designer rooms, freshly-cut and decorated Christmas trees, miniature scenes, model railroads, and of course, Santa Claus.

Participation in the show is limited to vendors selling holiday décor and gifts. It is a retail show, so all vendors must have cash and carry items.

Show Size
The show covers a total of 250,000 square feet. Show guests are welcomed by an Olde Towne Village surrounded by arts and craft vendors. Commercial and food vendors fill two additional halls at The Park Expo and Conference Center.

Exhibit Space Availability
The Southern Christmas Show is always a sold-out event, and maintains a healthy waiting list. However, we are always seeking new vendors with products that are new, and unique to the show. Because we strive to provide show guests with a good variety of holiday décor, crafts and gifts, the show waiting list consists of applications offering types of products that are already well-represented in the show. If, for instance, you sell jewelry, then no matter how different your jewelry is from what’s already in the show, your chances of being selected are unlikely because the show already has a good selection of jewelry. If you sell a product that’s not already in the show, and is something appropriate to the show, your chances of being accepted are good.
