Kingsport’s 39th Annual Christmas Connection, a free admission event, is to be held November 9 – 11 at the Kingsport Civic Auditorium. Sponsored by the Kingsport Office of Cultural Arts, Christmas Connection hosts some of 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, paintings, figurines, candles, baked goods and much much more!
In 2018, courtesy of Bubba’s Book Store, several regional authors will be on hand each day to sign their books in the Civic Auditorium West Side. Also in attendance this year are the artists from Kingsport’s Senior Artisan Center & Senior Center. Their crafts will be set up in the Civic Auditorium West Room.
Outside, attendees will find kettle corn and other food items available for purchase. Country favorites will be served on stage at the Christmas Connection Café, and baked goods from Kingsport Ballet and Suzuki Talent Education will be at the entrance of the Civic Auditorium.
With the holidays fast approaching, Christmas Connection is a great place to find unique gifts and support master craftspeople in our region.
