Dear Crafter:                                                                                                              


The Christiansburg Lions Club invites you to participate in its

31st Annual Lions Holiday Craft Show


Christiansburg Lions Club’s 31st Annual Lions Holiday Craft Show will be held on Saturday, December 2nd from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.  Our show will be held again this year at the Christiansburg Recreation Center on the corner of Franklin and Cambria Streets.  The price for booths is $60 each, plus $8 for each table you would like to have provided by the Recreation Center.


For those who purchased a booth in 2022:  Applications must be postmarked by October 2nd in order to guarantee returning vendors a spot in the show. If you wish to keep the same booth location, please indicate that on your application form. If you want to change spots, please note your preference for a new location and we will try to accommodate your request. We will be notifying vendors that we received your application by November 6th.


New vendors: Applications from new vendors must be postmarked by October 15th.  We will not be using the application date as the sole determination of who receives one of the limited numbers of available spots.  (Typically, only about 20-30 spots open up).  We will select the vendors whose booths will have the most positive impact on our show.  We will send notifications to all vendors by November 6th regarding the status of their application, and booth number if they make the show.


Please note that our rules require that all items sold by a vendor must be hand-made or hand-altered by the vendor. Those that violate this rule will not be invited to return.  All the money that we earn goes to the community, with an emphasis on the purchase of eyeglasses and eye exams for those in our service area that cannot afford them. So, don't miss out on this opportunity to make a little extra spending money for the Holidays and help out a good cause at the same time.
