August 23, 2012, Fayetteville, NC – It is that time of year again! The 46th Annual Holly Day Fair, the largest holiday gift and craft show in Eastern North Carolina, will be held Nov. 1-4 at the Crown Expo Center in Fayetteville. Hosted by the Junior League of Fayetteville and sponsored in-part by Reed - Lallier Chevrolet, the Holly Day Fair is a one-stop holiday shopping event that draws an average of 22,000 attendees and over 200 vendors.  Show-goers have an extensive selection of unique handcrafted and manufactured products to select from including the best in holiday decorations, handmade crafts, stylish jewelry and clothes, children’s toys, specialty food items and much more.

“The Holly Day Fair is a wonderful time to get your shopping done for the holidays. We have regulars that come from all over every year, but we always love to surprise newcomers too,” said Kelly Myers, 2012 Holly Day Fair Chair, “This is our 46th year and we're looking to expand not only our fair itself but the people we reach.

As well as being a great event, it also serves as the sole fundraiser for the Junior League of Fayetteville with all funds raised going directly back into our local community.

“Each year keeps getting bigger and better and we are proud to report that we raised over $284,000 for the community last year with this one fundraiser,” said Teresa Elliott, Junior League of Fayetteville President, “We hope to surpass that amount this year, to sustain our focus of committing programs, projects and advocacy to ensuring children ages 0 to 18 have the opportunity and services essential to their physical, intellectual, emotional, and social well being.”

The Holly Day Fair kicks off Nov. 1 with Super Shopper from 9 a.m. to noon.  These special event tickets can be purchased for $13.  Tickets are limited.  Strollers and any type of rolling carts are strictly prohibited during Super Shopper hours.  General admission tickets for the event are $9. All tickets include free parking. Children 5 and under are free.

Regular hours of the event are as follows:  Thursday, noon to 8 p.m., Friday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday, 11 am to 5 p.m. Tickets to the 2012 Holly Day Fair can be purchased in advance through Ticketmaster at www.ticketmaster.com, at the official Holly Day Fair Web site at www.hollydayfair.com, beginning September 17.
