Tickets on sale soon as Southern Christmas Show returns in November
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - The Southern Christmas Show is returning this November after a missed year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“People attend the show annually with their parents, their sisters, their friends, their cousins, and to take away that tradition from people last year was heartbreaking,” show manager Jennifer Smetana told WBTV.
This year, bells will be ringing.
“We’re real excited that this year we’re gonna get back on track,” exhibitor Mark Morgan said. “It’s been a difficult year for everyone.”
Since 1998, Mark Morgan has had a booth at the Southern Christmas Show.
He sells unique decor from his small business called “A Home For Christmas.”
“Our customers are really like friends and family,” he said.
With the pandemic he lost sales and the in-person connection.
“I did sell online but it is nothing like the Christmas show,” he said.
Smetana says people can expect all the fan favorites.
“We of course will have the entertainment stage back, the trains, Santa, all of our favorite morsels and goodies will be back to the show,” she said.
There will be 400 exhibitors set up at the center,
“We think there’s a lot of pent up demand out there for Christmas,” Morgan said. “We think it’s probably gonna be one of the biggest shows we’ve ever had.”
There’s sure to be more jingle in exhibitor’s cash registers this year. In Charlotte Caroline Hicks WBTV OYS.
The show will be held live and in-person Nov. 11-21 and tickets will go on sale July 21.
The show is offering a subscriber-only “Christmas in July” sale.
