If you haven’t noticed the holidays are here! And we couldn’t be more excited as Christmas is our favorite time of year. To celebrate all things Christmas, 10 years ago we started the Wilson Living Holiday Expo and are excited to be bringing you a bigger, brighter and better Holiday Expo than in year’s past.
General admission day tickets are $6.00 on Friday, November 16th
The doors open bright and early on Friday and will stay open until 4 p.m. for the general public. This year we have included more booth space and will have three buildings filled to the brim, as well as various outdoor vendors on hand. Vendors were hand selected for their unique products, and to encourage more local participation we allowed vendors to share space this year, to bring in even more selection. That means there is something for everyone on your holiday shopping list including gifts, clothing, jewelry, holiday decor, art, as well as tasty treats and warm drinks.
Gala tickets are $16.00 on Friday
On Friday the Expo doors will close at 4 p.m. and reopen at 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for the Holiday GALA party. Different tickets are needed to attend the GALA. Once inside our ticketed guests will be treated to tasty treats and drinks courtesy of Sammy B’s, swag bags filled with great free products and exclusive vendor discounts just for our special guests. Santa will be on hand for free photos as well. It’s a night of holiday music, twinkling lights and shopping galore – so be sure to bring a few friends and kick off the holidays at the best holiday party of the year!
General admission day tickets are $6.00 on Saturday, November 17th
On Saturday we reopen our doors at 10 a.m. and will again stay open until 4 p.m. Friday or Saturday General Admission Tickets, as well as GALA tickets, can be purchased online on our website at www.wilsonlivingmagazine.com, on the Wilson Living Magazine Facebook page, at various Wilson Bank & Trust locations, as well as at the door. $1.00 of every ticket sale will go to the Agricultural Center Management Fund.
On Saturday, Mrs. Claus will be on hand for free photos with the children and various book readings. We also will have various local authors on hand for book signings.
The great thing about the Fairgrounds is all the space! If you are a local vendor and want to participate, give us a call at 615-818-4646 or 615-364-9082 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to have as many booths as possible for all those attending so don’t delay!
