Christmas Connection is an ongoing favorite staple in the community, going 37 years strong! It is a very well established cultural event in Kingsport, hosting the region’s best arts and crafts vendors. The Civic Auditorium will be filled with Holiday wreaths & floral arrangements, primitive & country crafts, Christmas ornaments, pottery, stained glass, woodcrafts, handmade soaps and lotions, fabric crafts, needlework, doll clothing, jewelry, dichroic glass, handmade greeting cards and paper art, leather crafts, basketry, paintings, figurines, candles, baked goods and much more!

Look for them in the Civic’s West Room.  Also joining us again this year are the artists from Kingsport’s Senior Artisan Center. Make sure to stop in the Civic’s History Room and check out their beautiful crafts.

Outside, patrons will find that sweet and salty treat, kettle corn, being made fresh all day. Hot Dogs and fried items will be available for purchase at the parking lot entrance.  The Christmas Connection Café will be serving up country favorites on Saturday like mouthwatering homemade soup beans & cornbread.  And don’t miss all the yummy bakes goods at the entrance provided by the Kingsport Ballet and Suzuki Talent Education.

The Holidays are fast approaching and this is an excellent opportunity to grab some holiday cheer, support master craftsmen and find unique gifts and treasures. Shoppers can spend the day shopping inside; out of the weather and amongst quality arts and crafts.
