Held at the Overland Park Convention Center November 14-17, 2019, the Holiday Boutique, one of the Kansas City area’s favorite annual events, features close to 315 boutiques and companies from all over the country who will bring their wares - everything from jewelry to home décor, children’s gifts and toys, apparel, handcrafted goods, custom-made gifts by local artisan designers, beauty and bath and body products, gourmet foods, stationery, things for the garden, seasonal items and more.
These unique, high-quality vendors—many of them annual fan favorites—in addition to many new boutiques and artisans, contribute to a fresh experience each year for the thousands of holiday shoppers attending the four-day event.
One of the highlights and most popular aspects of the Holiday Boutique is the Festival of Trees. Here, the lights and sparkle of the holiday season are displayed among uniquely decorated holiday trees, wreaths, and centerpieces donated by a wealth of local individuals, companies and civic groups. Each item is available for sale via a silent auction throughout the weekend, and proceeds go directly to the Johnson County Christmas Bureau (JCCB), which has provided holiday assistance to low-income children and families in Johnson County for over 55 years.
Special collection barrels will also be on site near the Festival of Trees. Please bring along gently used coats and/or non-perishable food items to donate to the Johnson County Christmas Bureau’s holiday assistance efforts.
In addition to shopping for all the latest and trendy gifts, products and services, other special features attendees will enjoy throughout the Holiday Boutique include:
Holiday Entertainment Stage
A new feature this year is the Holiday Entertainment Stage where attendees can enjoy festive performances from local talent throughout the weekend.
There are three special contests this year:
* The chance to win a $500 VISA gift card
