Get ready to shop at the 34th Annual Oma’s Christmas Fair

Contributed

Get ready to shop, because the 34th Annual Oma’s Christmas Fair is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 2 and Sunday, Dec. 3, 2017. Hosted by the Kendall County Fair Association, the two-day indoor event is held rain or shine at the Kendall County Fairgrounds. The family oriented craft fair features local and statewide vendors who feature and showcase handcrafted/handmade merchandise. The one-stop holiday shopping event draws an average of 2,500 attendees over the two-day event with three halls of vendors for your shopping experience.
At Oma’s there are many reasons to attend and do your holiday shopping. Shoppers have an extensive selection of unique handcrafted/handmade merchandise to select from and you are guaranteed to find one of a kind item for everyone on their gift-giving list. Shoppers will be amazed at the selections and impressed by the creativity of the handcrafted/handmade merchandise featured from holiday decorations to the latest trendy stylish jewelry and not to add pretty much anything and everything else one can imagine. Shoppers will get their chance to chat with the person (vendor) whose hands made and/or designed the merchandise that is in front of them. How amazing is that? By shopping Oma’s you are supporting local industry and independent owners.
Oma’s Christmas Fair is a wonderful place to get your shopping done. Marilyn Culak, director of Oma's, states: “This is Oma’s 34th year and we are excited and looking forward to this year’s show. We have many returning vendors and an abundance of new vendors from Boerne and the local area. Oma's is based and focused on vendors and shoppers. Both are needed to continue Oma's. Oma's features handcrafted/handmade merchandise and the association has no plans on changing the 34th-year old tradition anytime soon.”
The concessions menu at Oma’s will satisfy one’s hunger pangs, too. One’s nose will lead you to the food concession with the smell of home cooked potato soup in the New Hall and Old Hall concession areas. Other food items will also be available as well as iced tea, coffee, hot chocolate, refreshing drinks and for your sweet tooth, a Bake Sale.
Santa Land for the children will be located in the New Hall and will feature Santa for photo's. Santa hours are from noon to 1p.m. on Saturday; and from 1 to 2 p.m., Sunday. Santa will also be making personal appearances to all three halls to check out the naughty and nice. His mailbox with his North Pole address will be located in the New Hall in Santa Land for letters to Santa.
Oma’s hours are 9 a.m. -5 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 2; 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 3. Admission is $5 per adult; and children12 and younger are free. Admission includes free parking for two days and a chance to win daily door prizes and a “Shop 'Till You Drop Raffle” of a $1,000 Visa Card. Drawing will be held at 4 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 6, (and you do not have to be present to win). Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20.
Oma’s also serves as a fundraiser for the Kendall County Fair Association.
