Christmas Village at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds is one of the city's oldest holiday traditions. Held each year during the second weekend of November, the village hosts more than 200 local businesses selling wares. From gourmet food to home accessories, virtually every product and service offered in the city is on display. The three-day event draws nearly 30,000 visitors, and the proceeds benefit local philanthropic organizations.
Christmas Village has vendors and shoppers from all over the country (contrary to what the description says). I've been every year for the past three years and it is fantastic. You will find countless unique gifts at Christmas Village. I was able to find great gifts for everyone on my Christmas List. Many vendors have Christmas themed items for sale but there are tons of other, non-seasonal, items as well (Jewelry, shoes, food, clothing, lawn and garden items...). They also do a great job of providing items for every interest. If you are a serious shopper, I suggest going for more than one day! If you buy a one day ticket, you can turn it in at the information desk on your way out and get a "return ticket" for the following day at a fraction of the cost instead of paying full price again!
My daughter and I make this our annual "Mother-Daughter" outing. We drive down from Campbellsville, Ky. and spend 2 nights at the Airport Marriot. The Christmas Village has something for everyone and most items are priced very reasonable.
The only complaint we have is the parking.
Even with a Handicap Parking Permit it is a task to find a parking place. They seem to cater to the Exhibitors rather than the visitors. I have a very hard time walking very far and much of the parking is downhill from the entrance.
I would recomend the Christmas Village to everyone!
