It's time to Experience the
Christmas City Gift Show!
A Note from Ron
One of my favorite things to do is to produce this wonderful event. If you are an exhibitor and considering Christmas City, let me tell you a few reasons you should do this show. I limit the amount of exhibitors. In 2013 Christmas City will have 200 exhibitors with 300 booths. Some shows keep adding and adding exhibitors, I do not. I try hard to limit how big the pie is to be divided. You're here to make money and I want you to make money so you will return. A friendly staff will be available to help you move in. Our goal is to ensure your visit is a special one. This event is 30 years old and I have been blessed to have worked with some of the finest exhibitors in the country. Please consider this show.
Christmas City began in 1983 as an outdoor show under the Rice Pavilion in Gulfport with a little more than 35 booths. It quickly outgrew its home, and moved to the Mississippi Coast Coliseum Convention Center in Biloxi, Mississippi. Ron has produced Christmas City in New Orleans Superdome, Hattiesburg, MS, Mobile, AL and Pensacola Florida. But it was Biloxi that drew the large crowds, so in 1997 all Ron’s energy goes into this once a year spectacular event!
The Christmas City Gift Show is about a variety of Christmas Gifts. From handcrafted to the most unusual and unique gifts anywhere. You'll marvel at aisle after aisle of gift ideas, home decor, jewelry and accessories, scrapbook supplies, handmade heirlooms, fashions for children and adults, framed art, fragrances, kitchenware...Click on the featured gifts button to see a sample of gifts. The 2-day event draws thousands of visitors to the newly expanded Coast Coliseum Convention Center. Exhibitors for the show sign up months in advance for a spot to showcase their gifts, foods and art.
In 2013 the North Pole will be completely transformed into an incredible children's area. Entertainment for the little ones with Free Crafts, letters to Santa, and of course Santa will be there with photo opportunities. Live entertainment will sing your favorite Christmas Carols and our special decorated "Trees of Hope" will sparkle with delight. A food court with a large menu will be available during show hours.
Selected as Top 20 Tourism Event in the Southeast!
Because of Christmas City’s uniqueness and estimated half-million dollar economic impact to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, in 2010 and again in 2012 it was recognized by the Southeast Tourism Society as a top twenty tourism event! This event is for the family!
