Get your holiday shopping started early!
Talented artisans display and sell their crafts at this traditional opening of the holiday shopping season in Chesapeake.

Over 90 crafters to shop from for handmade gifts and decorations!

We welcome your little ones to visit us in our Winter Wonderland room where they will be able to make crafts that they can take home. Kids Run Trains will also be on hand to demonstrate their awesome trains. Of course we'll have free SANTA CLAUS visits from 12:00 - 3:00 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday (Parents, bring your camera!). Chessie, the Parks, Recreation and Tourism mascot, will also be around and available for pictures on both days. Concessions will be available for purchase.
