Unique Arts and Crafts Galore
It’s Northern Virginia’s grand opening celebration of the holiday season! This spectacular, award-winning holiday show features 150 fine artisans from more than 20 states. Artisans offer a diverse selection of fine arts, pottery, jewelry, stained glass, wood, photography, fiber arts, vintage re-creations as well as thousands of one-of-kind Christmas collectibles. Select specialty food vendors will offer gift-packaged gourmet fare. These tasty homemade goodies are ideal for creating wonderful gift baskets, loading up Santa’s stockings, and gathering those hard-to-find executive gifts. A major food drive benefiting the Capital Area Food Bank is held during this event each year as well.
