Another must-see holiday event that brings in visitors from all over the country is the Southern Christmas Show in Charlotte. As the largest holiday shopping event in Charlotte, you’ll find over 400 merchants under one roof, selling everything from paintings and sculptures to housewares and ornaments, and everything in between. At the start, take in the beauty of the Christmas Tree Lane and living room displays decorated by local designers, then move on to Old Towne, a magical village full of quaint shops filled with gifts and decorations. Next, you’ll move on to the giant exhibit halls, where you’ll find the rest of the vendors, along with local wineries, live entertainment, and lots of delicious food. While you’re there, check out the Enchanted Village of dollhouses and other miniature scenes, the tiny train display and, of course, get your photo taken with Santa.
