Chi Omega Christmas Market 

November 15-18, 2017

Centennial Hall at Fair Park

The 2016 Market is a wrap! Check back here in early March for the online 2017 Merchant Application.

The Chi Omega Christmas Market offers a unique one-of-a-kind shopping experience with over 180 merchants showcasing gifts for every age including holiday decor, women’s clothing and accessories, home accents, children’s clothing and toys, food gifts, and much more! In its 39 year history, Chi Omega Christmas Market has distributed over $7 million dollars to the Dallas community through grants to local charities and collegiate scholarships. Funds for Chi Omega Christmas Market beneficiaries are derived solely from ticket sales, merchant booth fees, donations and underwriting. Chi Omega Christmas Market receives no monies from merchant booth sales. In 2015, we donated  $330,000 to worthy local organizations and are thrilled to continue the tradition of giving this year!

 

History of the Chi Omega Christmas Market 

The first Chi Omega Christmas Market was held in November 1978. Dallas Chi Omega Alumnae spent 2 years planning to get the first show off the ground. It was held at the old Dallas Convention Center.  There were 49 booths and 14 double booths. One of the original Market Chairmen said, “Getting merchants for that first year was very hard! It took a real team of ladies to sell them on the idea.” That first Market was a tremendous success raising $35,000 for the Dallas community.

In 1980 we moved to the 'Convention Center' Ballroom of the old NorthPark Inn. The Market grew and moved back to the Dallas Convention Center in 1987. We stayed there until 2012, then moved to our current home at Fair Park.

The Market now has an extensive application process and a merchant waiting list, so we are able to bring you over 180 of the best merchants around! One of our long time vendors recently wrote, “From a seasoned retailer’s point of view, Chi Omega Christmas Market is THE premier holiday market in North Texas.”

The event has grown so much over its history that we now consistently give over $250,000 year after year to worthy Dallas organizations. This is in large part due to the support of our 10,000+ shoppers each year. Please check out the Beneficiary Tab for insight into how the Dallas community has benefitted from the Chi Omega Christmas Market. 

Chi Omega active SCHOLARSHIPS are given yearly as well. See the General Info tab above > Scholarships.
