Get a tinsel-laden leg up on holiday shopping by perusing the more than 300 exhibition booths bursting with jewelry, home décor, toys, arts and crafts, clothing, and one-of-a-kind gifts. Visit the large gourmet food area to sample a variety of edibles including soups, pastas, coffee, chocolates, toffee, and shortbread before pondering the future of miniature high-speed rail at the operating model-train displays. The festival boasts a wide array of one-of-a-kind and hand-crafted wares to help shoppers check off the names of even the pickiest present partakers from their holiday list. Tough-to-please tots and their pleasing parents will be glad to know that Santa will be on hand for daily appearances, where the festive atmosphere makes him particularly receptive to re-opening previous pony-based negotiations.
Holiday Food & Gift Festival
The Holiday Food & Gift Festival brings together exhibitors, food vendors, and a slice of Santaland. Artisans forge jewelry, crafts, sculptures, pre-packaged gourmet food, and photography that pile atop exhibition tables to form glittering mountains of potential presents. Handmade toys and the irrepressible sparkle of Christmas décor capture the attention of thousands of annual attendees, and attendees can visit 50 gourmet food booths and taste samples from local wineries and distilleries.
