Christmas Connection--Arts & Crafts Fair
Kingsport’s Christmas Connection, an event sponsored by the Kingsport Office of Cultural Arts, is celebrating 34 years of arts and crafts in 2013. Look for the show the 1st or 2nd weekend every November at the Civic Auditorium, located on Fort Henry Drive next to Dobyns-Bennett High School. Admission to this fun-filled, shopping event is FREE and open to the public!
Christmas Connection has been around for over 30 years because it is a charming old-fashion festival hosting the region’s best arts and crafts vendors. The Civic Auditorium will be filled with hand-made clothing, floral arrangements, pottery, jewelry, delicate woodworking, Christmas ornaments, baked goods, toys, watercolors, paintings, figurines, baskets, candles, tapestries, heated pillows, needlework, dolls and much more. The Holidays are always fast in approaching, and this is an excellent opportunity to grab some holiday cheer, support master craftsmen and find unique gifts and treasures. Shoppers can spend the day shopping inside; out of the weather and amongst quality art and crafts. The Christmas Connection Café has concessions to enjoy. Shoppers won’t have to lose their parking spot to eat elsewhere. Come visit the Christmas Connection. For more information or directions to the Christmas Connection, please call 423-392-8414.
