Christmas Craft Show 2022
Dec 2 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Christmas Craft Show 2022 @ Odell Weeks Activities Center

The City of Aiken Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Department will host the 52nd Annual Christmas Craft Show Friday, December 2, and Saturday, December 3, from 9:00 A.M. – 5:00 P.M. at the H. Odell Weeks Activities Center. This juried craft show brings artisans and shoppers from Southeast Asia to Aiken.

This indoor/outdoor show is a beautiful opportunity for crafters to sell handmade treasures to thousands of potential customers. Our 2021 show boasted over 6800 people in attendance over two days.

The Craft Show would not be complete without food vendors. If you have a food truck and want to expand your client base, this may be the perfect opportunity for you! Not only will you have guaranteed customers by hungry shoppers, but the Odell Weeks Activities Center is conveniently located off of Whiskey Road, adjacent to one of Aiken’s most popular playgrounds.

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

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