KINGSPORT — Christmas is right around the corner in Kingsport.

The 39th annual Christmas Connection returns to the Kingsport Civic Auditorium next week with a whole host of the region’s best arts and crafts vendors. The three-day event takes place on Nov. 9 through Nov. 11 and is free and open to the public.

You’ll be able to find plenty of goodies during the event, including wreaths, floral arrangements, primitive and country crafts, ornaments, pottery, stained glass, woodcrafts, handmade soaps and lotions, fabric crafts, needlework, doll clothing, jewelry, dichroic glass, handmade greeting cards and paper art, leather crafts, candles and baked goods.

Several regional authors will also be on hand each day to sign their books in the west side. Artists from Kingsport’s Senior Artisan Center will have their crafts set up in the west room.

Outside, you’ll find kettle corn and other food items available for purchase. Country favorites will be served on stage at the Christmas Connection Café, and baked goods from Kingsport Ballet and Suzuki Talent Education will be found at the entrance of the Civic Auditorium.

With the holidays fast approaching, Christmas Connection is a great place for you to find unique gifts and support master craftspeople in our region.
