Exactly one month from today, the eagerly anticipated Greater Cincinnati Holiday Market℠ returns with fun new features for the family and more booths than ever before. Presented by the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky Honda Dealers, the holiday shopping event of the year will feature 500+ booths with everything you need to make your season bright, cleverly handcrafted by hundreds of local boutiques and specialty stores, all in one place, one weekend only, November 8 – 10 at the Duke Energy Convention Center.
The annual holiday shopping show will offer an unprecedented selection of holiday gifts, décor, specialty clothing and one-of-a-kind treasures, plus gourmet food from the Cincy Specialty Food & Treats Show℠, which runs in conjunction with the market. Thousands of holiday shoppers have enjoyed this market in years past, and 2019 is expected to boast record attendance.
“There is no better place to sip, shop and sleigh your way into the holiday season than at the Greater Cincinnati Holiday Market,” said Vicki Hart, CEO of Hart Productions and producer of the show. “We’ve made several show enhancements this year to make your shopping experience not only convenient and productive as you breeze through your gift list, but also make it a treasured memory you’ll cherish and want to repeat year after year.”
The show is welcoming more than 150 new vendors from near and far, along with the launch of a new on-site courier service called Rudolph’s Runners, offering expedient large item pick up and storage for power shoppers to continue checking off their gift lists uninterrupted.
There will also be a new Santa Selfie Station for photo opps with Saint Nick himself, in support of the Polar Plunge benefiting the Special Olympics! And the expanded wine-and-appetizer lounge offers a refreshing space for shoppers to snag a snack and a sip when they need a moment of rest. VIP perks, early admission and stroller-free shopping options are also available.
The holiday cheer is starting early with the market’s popular “30 Days of Giveaways” with more daily giveaways than ever before on the official Facebook page – facebook.com/cincyholidaymarket – throughout this month leading into the weekend of the show. Incredible high value gifts will be posted daily October 9 – November 7.
The Greater Cincinnati Holiday Market℠ was named the #1 Girls Day Out by Cincinnati Magazine, and is the official start to Cincinnati’s holiday shopping season. Tickets range from $8-$25 online, in advance. Kids 12 and under are free with a paying adult.
