FTM Early Christmas Gift - Ticket Giveaway!


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 d├ęcor, 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.

Fort Thomas Matters has two sets of tickets to be given to two of our lucky readers courtesy of Vehr Communications! The tickets are in sets of four so you can take a group of your closest friends for a day of shopping and holiday hoopla! All you have to do is leave a comment to this article to be entered to win. Tell us what you are looking forward to most this holiday season. The winners will be randomly drawn and announced on Wednesday. The winner’s tickets will be available at will call at the convention center.

For more information on the Holiday Market you can visit the event Facebook page. Admission for adults is $8. Adults can save $3 on admission by buying a ticket at Cincinnati-area Kroger stores. Children (ages 13 and under) are free when accompanied by a paying adult.

For those of you who like to plan every last second of your afternoon we also included the floor plan for the entire event, so that you can maximize your shopping to relaxing ratio!

Have a great time if you do attend the event; be sure to let us know what you’re looking forward to over the holidays to be entered into the ticket drawing. A special thank you to Mr. Dan Guttridge and Vehr Communications for supplying the tickets for the Holiday Market.

  10. The lights & decorations are my favorite part of the holiday season. I love to drive through town & see it all lit up, especially the churches. Reminds me of the small town that I grew up in! Love The Holiday Market as well - Tri-State Boutique Shopping under one roof. Can't wait!
