54th Annual Christmas Craft Show Applications Now Available Online

Aiken, SC – Apply to the 54th Annual Christmas Craft Show and experience the magic of the season! The City of Aiken Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Department will host an indoor/outdoor craft show on Friday, December 6 and Saturday, December 7, 2024 from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM at the H. Odell Weeks Activities Center. The juried show attracts artisans and shoppers from across the Southeast and is a wonderful opportunity for crafters to sell handmade treasures to thousands of potential customers. Our 2023 show boasted over 6,000 people in attendance.

If you are a Christmas Craft Show regular or new to crafting and looking to participate in a historically well-attended holiday show, APPLY NOW! The event also welcomes food vendors! Not only will you have guaranteed customers by hungry shoppers, but the H. Odell Weeks Activities Center is conveniently located off of Whiskey Road, and home to one of Aiken’s most popular playgrounds.

Be sure to read the detailed instructions in the application packet and provide photos that capture the quality of your work. Photos of your products are the only way for jurors to determine acceptance to the show. Presentation is essential.

This year’s Saturday show will feature a limited number of Young Entrepreneurs. This is a separate application, and applications will be judged independently of the adult vendors.

Download vendor applications at https://coa.page/erag. For more information, call 803-642-7600, then press 3.

The City of Aiken Parks, Recreation, and Tourism invites people of all ability levels to enjoy programs, parks, and facilities. Individuals needing special assistance to participate should notify PRT Administration Office 48 hours in advance.

For more information, please contact Kathleen Hutto, Recreation Program Coordinator
