|This trip is a forever favorite … with a different name for 2024. In the past it has been called Girlfriend Holiday but as our Professional Motorcoach Driver reminded me it is one of his favorite trips we offer. So, we invite everyone to join us as we shop, create take home pieces, enjoy a wonderfully prepared meal, and totally immerse ourselves in the Spirit of Christmas.
Gingerbread Christmas Show - Sponsored by Plainfield Tri Kappa, Gingerbread Christmas is the oldest and largest fine art and craft show in the area with over 130 booths. Master artists and crafters from many states showcase a wide variety of creative, hand-crafted and original works of art. Browse a tempting array of unique and one-of-a-kind gifts, home décor, accessories, wearable art and seasonal decorations with quality items made available throughout the day. Gingerbread Christmas is unique from many other craft shows in that vendors are required to submit an application with photographs of their items every year. These applications and photos are juried by our Vendor Committee to make sure all items are handcrafted. No commercial or imported items are allowed. • McCammon’s Irish Market (originally Frazee Gardens) - This unique garden center and gift shop offers an eclectic mix of hard-to-find gift items, gardening supplies, and artwork from local artists. Partake in holiday workshop stations to learn how to make Christmas gift items. • Lunch catered by Bread Basket Café & Bakery - This lunch is a soup, bread, and crudites and includes a Dessert Buffet with their delectable treats. • Paint by Flory - Back by popular demand from past travelers who loved this event. We will paint a small canvas Christmas design.
