christmas-shoppingPeople travel from all ends of the state to experience our Christmas Village.

On average, we have over 30,000 people that walk through our winter wonderland.

That’s 30,000 people with whom you can personally connect and talk about your business!

We are inviting you and your business to set up a vendor table in the heart of our Christmas Village. You can choose from several different time frame options to best fit your schedule. Contact us to discuss your vendor dates.

As vendors, we welcome you to bring your products and information about your services. We also require that you bring some kind of craft or activity for the kids visiting your table. This will help increase your booth’s popularity, and while the kids are occupied, you can talk to the parents about your business and services.
