November 20th and 21st are the dates for our 11th annual juried arts and crafts show featuring artists from Florida, Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee. 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 artist 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 15,000 to 18,000, including thousands who return year after year.
Come and enjoy the sights and sounds while browsing through more than 100 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, unique wooden birdhouses, 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. 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!
