Tis the season! The largest holiday show in North America, the Southern Christmas Show is finally back after 2 long years. The show will return to Charlotte from Thursday, Nov. 11, through Sunday, Nov. 21 and will feature more than 400 vendors showcasing the latest gifts, treats, holiday décor, gourmet goodies, and much more!

Guests will be greeted at the Park Expo and Conference Center by the smell of baked sugar cookies. Once inside can they stroll through dazzling designer rooms listen to old-fashioned carols, and share their holiday wishes with Santa Claus himself. And the main event? An unparalleled holiday shopping experience including gift options and a variety of holiday ornaments, wreaths, stockings, and trimmings.

This year’s theme is “A Sweet Christmas,” which included life-sized gingerbread castle built into the main entrance and playful candy-inspired decorations.  Show guests will pass through Olde Towne, where the magic of the season comes alive with shops brimming with gifts, dolls, ornaments and decorations. Christmas Tree Lane will deck the halls with trees from the North Carolina mountains and ideas that range from traditional to whimsical. The show will also provide many ways to make mantels, doors and wreaths shine during this holiday season.
