The Chi Omega Christmas Market offers a unique one-of-a-kind shopping experience with over 175 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!

2016 Special Event - HGTV's Nicole Curtis will visit our market to autograph copies of her new book. See Market Hours & Events under the General Info tab. More details coming.

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 in the Ballroom of the Dallas Convention Center where there were 49 booths and 14 double booths. One of the original Market Chairmen said, “Getting merchants for the first year was so hard! It took a real team of ladies to sell them on the idea.” The Market now has an extensive application process and a merchant waiting list, so we are able to bring you over 175 of the best merchants around! One of our long time merchants recently wrote, “From a seasoned retailer’s point of view, Chi Omega Christmas Market is THE premier holiday market in North Texas.”

That first year was a tremendous success raising $35,000 for the Dallas community. The event has grown so much over its history that we now consistently give over $250,000 year after year to worthy Dallas organizations.
