Since 1989. The Holiday Food and Gift Festivals are held annually in Denver and Colorado Springs, Colorado, and in Portland, Eugene and Redmond, Oregon. Our shows are a celebration of arts, crafts, and gourmet foods set in a holiday atmosphere amid Christmas trees, trains and Santa Claus. A popular area is the gourmet food where you can sample hundreds of different items including jams, jellies, meats, chili, candy, soups, dips, sauces, salsa, coffee, and much more! Santa makes his first appearance at the festivals delighting young and old alike. From 125 vendors in the smallest festival to over 400 in Denver, holiday shopping can be done in one place! No running around to different stores or wandering thru acres of mall space, shopping can be done at a leisurely pace while finding unique one-of-a- kind items. Let your holidays begin at the Holiday Food and Gift Festival.
