Christmas at the Fair Arts and Fine Crafts Showcase
November 18 - 19, 2016 ~ Bay County Fairgrounds ~ Panama City, Florida
November 18th and 19th are the dates for our 12th annual juried arts and fine crafts showcase featuring artists from our southern states, and as far away as Missouri. Christmas at the Fair is a Bay County tradition in which excited shoppers begin their personal or holiday shopping the Friday and Saturday before Thanksgiving. We have “Christmas” in the title, but we only have a few artists that sell completely Christmas items. It is an amazing shopping experience where you can enjoy an awesome array of works, from breathtaking fine art to charming stocking stuffers. The show will draw an enthusiastic crowd of 18,000 to 20,000, including thousands who return year after year.
We are excited to announce that due to continued growth this year we will also have vendors outside the main building since we are bursting at the seams with vendors inside. So come and enjoy the sights and sounds while browsing through more than 110 exhibitor booths of arts and fine crafts, and chatting with the artists themselves. There will be art work for every budget with a focus on quality and originality. This year the exhibitors will be selling everything from fine art, jewelry, hand thrown pottery, stained glass, watercolors, personalized signs, wine bottle art, fused glass, wood turning, handmade soaps, etched glass, candles, wooden pens, whimsical hand painted door art, personalized Christmas ornaments, metal nautical art, one-of-a-kind wooden furniture, shabby chic home décor to personalized children’s clothing and accessories. Always held the Friday and Saturday before Thanksgiving at the Central Panhandle Fair Grounds, this family-friendly event is a fantastic way to ease into your holiday shopping and delight someone you care about with a truly unique and special gift. The Central Panhandle Fair Grounds are located at the intersection of Sherman Ave and U.S. Hwy 98 in Panama City, Florida. Come back and join us again, and if you have never been to Christmas at the Fair it will become the event you choose to kick off your Christmas shopping year after year. Enjoy our site and we’ll see you at the fair!
