A holiday wonderland. A festive one-of-a-kind shopping experience. A family tradition. A whole lot of fun.

Just a few descriptions from the millions of show guests who have, since 1968, kicked off their holiday season at the Southern Christmas Show. You're invited to create your own memories, and fun, at the 46th annual show.

Show Features

Olde Towne

An enchanting village of 50 shops to browse. Their windows and shelves are filled with splendid gifts, dolls, ornaments and decorations for giving and collecting.

The Enchanted Village

Peek in the windows of marvelous doll houses and miniature scenes, all created by the National Association of Miniature Enthusiasts (N.A.M.E.)

Holiday Entertainment Stage

Enjoy puppet shows, holiday fashion, or sing along with the heavenly voices of choirs. There’s fun for everyone in the family.

Ho Ho Ho

The jolly fellow himself is collecting lists and greeting young and old. Proceeds benefit the Shriners Hospitals for Children.

Tiny Trains

Whooo, Whooo. Kids of all ages enjoy the beautiful and intricate trains that whistle through miniature villages and country scenes.

Holiday Morsels

Piping hot strudel, melt-in-your-mouth fruitcake, hand-dipped chocolates. Let your nose lead the way as you sample the best tastes of Christmas.


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

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.

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 exhibitors. Commercial and food exhibitors 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 exhibitors with products that are new, and unique to the show.
