Holiday shopping list
Texas' largest Christmas showcase decks the halls of San Antonio's Freeman Coliseum
Now that Halloween is behind us, it's time to compost those pumpkins and set up the Christmas tree (right?!). You may still be chomping on leftover candy, but the holiday season is here, and Mariah Carey is defrosting as we speak. To help you get in the festive spirit, the 43rd Annual San Antonio Christmas Showcase has announced that it will take place in just a matter of weeks: on November 19 and 20.
Setting up in the Freeman Coliseum Expo Hall, the Christmas showcase connects holiday shoppers with over 300 holiday exhibitors, including craft shops, eateries, small businesses, decoration experts, and more.
If you haven't already started making your list (and checking it twice), the event provides endless inspiration with products, decor, food, and entertainment galore. Bring the kids along for photos with Santa and other exciting activities.
Other highlights include:
- Free Crumbl Cookies for the first 500 guests
- Live jazz performances
- Christmas caroling
- A wine lounge and wine tastings
- Wreath making classes
- Kendra Scott boutique
- A food court featuring over 25 international cuisines
- Duck Donuts
"As the largest event of its kind in Texas, the Christmas Showcase is really a collection of everything that makes the holidays special," says Pamela Rogers, vice president of sales and marketing, in a release. "For over 40 years it has become a Texas tradition where family, friends and strangers come together to eat, drink, shop and enjoy the best holiday fun San Antonio has to offer."
