From its beginnings in 1968, 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 include a Dickens-style village with over 50 shops, holiday designer rooms, freshly-cut and decorated Christmas trees, miniature scenes and dollhouses, model railroads, and of course, Santa Claus.
Participation in the show is limited to exhibitors selling holiday decor and gifts. It is a retail show, so all exhibits must have cash and carry items.
The show covers a total of 250,000 square feet. Show guests are welcomed by an Olde Towne Village surrounded by arts and craft exhibitors. Commercial and food exhibitors fill two additional halls at The Park Expo and Conference Center.
