Celebrating 43 Years of Artisans & Crafters in Kingsport!


Kingsport, Tennessee –  The beloved Christmas Connection, Artistic Creations Fair, is celebrating 43 years of bringing some of the region’s best arts and crafts vendors to Kingsport.  This year we have a new location – Kingsport’s Meadowview Convention Center, in their main convention hall – Convention Center A.

The Christmas Connection is here to connect you just in time for the holiday festivities! You can find unique gifts and support artisans in our region. Free Admission all weekend!  


The sights, sounds and smells of Christmas will surround shoppers as they shop from the region’s best craftspeople, artisans, artists, and creatives. A few of the items you will find include Country Crafts, Home Décor, Fine Woodcrafts, Leathercrafts, Handmade Soaps and Lotions, Candles, Jewelry, Christmas Ornaments, Stained Glass, Wheel Thrown Pottery, Fabric Crafts, Needlework, American Girl Doll Clothing, Pet Accessories and Clothing, Dichroic Glass, Handmade Greeting Cards and Paper Art, Snowmen, Santas, Baked Goods, and much more!

As you enter the Civic, take your taste-buds over to the “Connection Café,” where you can enjoy country favorites. At the front entrance make sure to stop by the food trucks & booths by the Kingsport Ballet, to satisfy your salty, savory, or sweet taste buds.
