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 $13,150 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 200 of the best merchants around! COCM offers a unique one-of-a-kind shopping experience with 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!  Funds for Chi Omega Christmas Market beneficiaries are derived solely from ticket sales, merchant booth fees, donations and underwriting. COCM receives no monies from merchant booth sales. 

The 2018 Market provided donations totaling $435,000 to worthy local charitable organizations. 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.” Over a period of 41 years we have supported 115 different agencies by donationg over $8.4 million dollars.

The event has grown so much over its history that we now consistently give over $250,000 year after year. This is in large part due to the support of our 11,000+ shoppers each year. Please check out the Beneficiary Tab for insight into how the Dallas community has benefitted from the Chi Omega Christmas Market. We are thrilled to continue the tradition of giving again in 2019!

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