Christmas in Cumming this Weekend

The annual arts and crafts show will be held this Friday and Saturday in the red livestock barn at the Cumming Fairgrounds.

The 15th annual Christmas in Cumming Arts and Crafts Show takes place this Friday and Saturday, Dec. 7 and 8 at the fairgrounds.

The two-day event is expected to attract thousands of people.

"We'll get anywhere from five to seven thousand people on Friday night and Saturday," said Bill Watson, event coordinator.

The show, held inside the heated red livestock barn located at the Cumming Fairgrounds, takes place on Friday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

"The arts and crafts booths are in the stalls," said Watson. "It actually creates a pretty cool atmosphere. Everybody decorates and kind of goes all out for the holidays."

Watson said about 100 arts and crafts vendors are participating. So if you have shopping to do there will be plenty of items to choose from including, hand woven sweet grass baskets, Christmas ornaments and wreaths, fudge and nuts, piggy banks, photography, paintings, clothing, jewelry and more.

"If you're looking for a handmade or unique type gift item you probably just can't buy in the mall, this is a great place to get that," he said.

In addition to the arts and crafts, there will be free photos with Santa on Friday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and again on Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. in the barn.

Also on Friday from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. there will be a Christmas light show, hayrides, roasted marshmallows, and caroling by Vickery Elementary, Midway Elementary and Brookwood Elementary school students.

Admission into the show is $1, children 12 and under are free.
