HISTORY OF THE CHI OMEGA CHRISTMAS MARKET
The first Chi Omega Christmas Market was held in November 1978. Dallas Chi Omega Alumnae spent 2 years planning to get the first show off the ground. It was held at the old Dallas Convention Center. There were 49 booths and 14 double booths. One of the original Market Chairmen said, Getting merchants for thatfirst yearwas very hard! It took a real team of ladies to sell them on the idea. That first Market was a tremendous success raising $13,150 for the Dallas community.

In 1980 we moved to the 'Convention Center'Ballroom of the old NorthPark Inn.The Market grew and moved back to the Dallas Convention Center in 1987. We stayed there until 2012, then moved to our current home at Fair Park.

The Market now has an extensive application process and a merchant waiting list, so we are able to bring you over 180of the best merchants around! One of our long time vendors recently wrote, From a seasoned retailers point of view, Chi Omega Christmas Market is THE premier holiday market in North Texas.

The event has grown so much over its history that we now consistentlygive over $250,000 year after yearto worthy Dallas organizations. This is in large part dueto the support of our 10,000+ shoppers each year.Please check out the Beneficiary Tab for insight into how the Dallas community has benefitted from the Chi Omega Christmas Market.
