CINCINNATI -- Want to get a jump on holiday gift shopping? The Greater Cincinnati Holiday Market will feature one-of-a-kind boutiques and specialty stores that will offer unparalleled selections of home decor, specialty clothing, personal accouterments and more.
Organizers say since it is a juried show, the Holiday Market selects only the highest quality exhibitors, ensuring that no two products are alike.
The Cincy Specialty Food and Treats Show will run in conjunction with the market, boasting exhibitors showcasing gourmet food, holiday entertainment and gift ideas. Local chefs and select exhibitors will host free seminars and demonstrations throughout the show.
The market runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday at the Duke Energy Convention Center in downtown Cincinnati.
New this year, shoppers can get a head start on holiday shopping by purchasing a VIP Early Admission ticket online here for Friday or Saturday. A $20 VIP ticket will get shoppers into the market from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. Friday, while a $15 ticket gets shoppers in from 9 to 10 a.m. Saturday.
General admission for adults is $9. Children (ages 12 and under) are free when accompanied by a paying adult. Adults can save $3 on admission by buying a ticket at Cincinnati-area Kroger stores.
