Nashville Christmas Village Shopping Information
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds in Nashville with all of the lights, merriment, and cheer! From November 12 -14, merchants from all over the United States will be coming together to set up the 44th annual Nashville Christmas Village. Just a short distance from downtown Nashville, Christmas Village is fun, convenient, exciting and unique. If you love everything about the holiday season, this amazing shopping experience is the place to be!
Called a shopper's dream, Christmas Village consists of more than 260 merchants of all different kinds, selling just about everything you could think of! It takes several buildings on the site just to accommodate all of them. Do you have an uncle who loves pewter gifts or a sister who just has to have personalized hand towels for Christmas? And what about all those people on Santa's list who seem to have everything? Well, instead of driving through a maze of crazy holiday traffic to get to shops all over town, why not come to The Christmas Village, where you'll find every gift you need for this holiday season, all in one convenient location! Since the Village contains all Christmas and gift-themed items, you can find decorations, home furnishings, crafts, art, handmade items, jewelry, apparel, toys, children's gifts, cookbooks, food and much more. You will find remarkable, original and one-of-a-kind items, perfect for surprising everyone on your Christmas list.
Christmas Village, which began in 1961, is a yearly event put together by the Nashville Pi Beta Phi Alumnae Club. Ticket sales go to benefit the philanthropies of this group, including the Vanderbilt Bill Wilkerson Center, the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts and others. Last year, more than 20,000 people came to Christmas Village, experienced Nashville's most prestigious consumer show, and supported these programs.
It's an amazingly creative and fun way to get talented artists and retailers together to showcase and sell unique gifts, gorgeous holiday decorations, delicious food and everything else you need for a Christmas to remember! Plus, it's a great way to support some worthy causes. Christmas Village is open from 9:00 a.m. to 6 p.m. on November 12 and 13, and noon to 6:00 p.m. on November 14. You pay just one fee to have access to all the buildings, and children nine and under are free! Once you've experienced it, you will know why it has been called the premier consumer show in the southeast.
After a long and successful day of shopping, you will want to retire somewhere close by that offers a relaxing atmosphere. Nearby accommodations include:
