The 52nd Anniversary Holly Day Fair, the largest holiday gift and craft show in Eastern North Carolina, will be held Nov. 1-4 at the Crown Expo Center in Fayetteville. Hosted by the Junior League of Fayetteville the Holly Day Fair is a one-stop holiday shopping event that draws an average of 22,000 attendees and over 170 vendors. Show-goers have an extensive selection of unique handcrafted and manufactured products to select from including the best in holiday decorations, handmade crafts, stylish jewelry and clothes, children’s toys, specialty food items and much more.

The theme for this year’s show is “The Gift that Keeps on Giving”. Ticket sales help support community projects and grants. “Proceeds from the Holly Day Fair benefit the Junior League of Fayetteville and its programs targeting homelessness and food insecurities. The grants and community programs funded by the proceeds from the Holly Day Fair have a substantial and lasting impact in our community. We provide an awesome experience for our shoppers. The Junior League of Fayetteville’s contributions to our community would not be possible without the success of our sole fundraiser, the Holly Day Fair. We hope that you will come out for an exciting event, full of fun, food, and shopping, but also supports the needs of women and children in Fayetteville and surrounding areas” said Juelle McDonald, 2018 Holly Day Fair Chair.
