Welcome to the 56th Annual Holly Day Fair!
November 2nd – 5th
The 56th Annual Holly Day Fair, the largest holiday gift and craft show in Eastern North Carolina, will be held November 2nd – 5th 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 150 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. A portion of the proceeds are given back to the local community through the Junior League of Fayetteville CAP grants, Junior League of Fayetteville Scholarship fund, and an array of community initiatives.
It’s hard to imagine that 56 years ago a group of local women came together and decided to host a small crafts fair fundraiser at St. John’s Episcopal Church here in Fayetteville! The fair now boasts over 22,000 shoppers, more than 150 vendors and raises over a quarter of million dollars each year, making it the largest gift and craft show in Eastern North Carolina! The Holly Day Fair has allowed the Junior League of Fayetteville to be one of the greatest community supporters of this city with a record of giving back over $5 million to our hometown. And we couldn’t have done it without the support of each of you who attend our Holly Day Fair.
Yes, we have come a long way since those days in the fellowship hall of St. John’s church, but the one thing that remains the same is our dedication to this community in making it a better place for us all to live. We look forward to seeing you at the 56th Annual Holly Day Fair, November 2nd – 5th, 2022! Make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes!
In the Holly Day Fair Spirit,
