The garland is being hung and visions of sugarplums are dancing in the heads of people all across the tri-state. Christmas time is upon us, even if you haven’t even purchased your Thanksgiving dressing yet. The holidays are celebrated from November first to mid January, and whether you have the Christmas cheer or not, the big guy’s belly is still going to shake like a bowl full of jelly.
One of the best ways to welcome in the holiday season every year is the Greater Cincinnati Holiday Market. The Holiday Market runs this weekend, November 15-17 at the Duke Energy Convention Center.
The Holiday Market is your one-stop-shop for everything you need for the holidays. The market features boutique stores from all over the greater Cincinnati area offering items such as gourmet food, home décor, specialty clothing, personal trinkets, and countless other items that will take care of every person on your Christmas list this year!
The date and times for this year’s event are the following:
Friday, November 15 – 10am to 6pm
Saturday, November 16 – 10am to 6pm
Sunday, November 17 – 10am to 5pm
Running in tandem with the Holiday Market this year will be the Cincy Specialty Food and Treats Show! This will provide the perfect gift destination for the foodies on your list. The Food and Treats Show will offer items such as the finest chocolate, desserts, candies, meats, cheeses, jams, jellies, salsas, sauces, olive oils, spices, dips and spreads, drinks and mixes! Are you getting hungry yet? We have one more announcement to make before you start scheduling your entire weekend around the event.
