F.C. City to Host 20th Annual Holiday Craft Show

Special gifts and more will be available at the City of Falls Church’s 20th annual holiday craft show next weekend.
From 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Dec. 1, and from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Dec. 2, more than 60 crafters will take over both floors of the Falls Church Community Center to sell unique handmade items and baked goods.

An all-weekend shopping pass costs $1 per person, and is free for children under the age of 12. Lunch is available for purchase both days.

The craft show will also feature special activities for children. The Great Zucchini, a D.C. area children’s entertainer, will perform Dec. 1 at 10 a.m. Tickets are $5 per person to attend the performance and reservations are required. Santa invites kids of all ages to enjoy a lunch sponsored by Chil-fil-A at one of two seatings at 11:30 a.m. or 1 p.m. Reservations are required to attend the lunch, and the cost is $6 per person.

Children can also visit the holiday shop at Cherry Hill Farmhouse, where volunteers will help them purchase and wrap inexpensive gifts ($5 and under) for friends and family from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
