Christmas Con is Coming to New Jersey!

Tuesday, October 15, 2019
I love a good Con, don't you? So I was really excited to hear that Christmas Con was coming to the NJ Convention and Expo Center in Edison this November! Christmas Con is an event featuring vendors, celebrity guests, contests, concerts and more, all themed around the most wonderful holiday of the year! Read on for more info about the show and see how you can get your tickets. And for the record, Hallmark is a proud sponsor of this fantastic show, but it is not their show. Read on to see exactly who created this fabulous holiday experience to come!

Disclosure: I will be attending Christmas Con this November as a member of the press. It sounds like so much fun, so I hope you'll come, too! Stay tuned to my social channels and blog for all things Christmas Con and Christmas Con updates!

What is Christmas Con?  

Here is a blurb straight from the Christmas Con website about what their event entails:

"Christmas Con is a first of its kind convention…think Comic Con meets small town Holiday Festival.  Stroll through our “Christmas Market”, where you can buy one of a kind holiday gifts, handmade decorations and festive Holiday treats, all by local artisans.  Our “Town Square” welcomes you with Santa himself under a big Christmas Tree. From there, head to the booths of our amazing Celebrity Guests for autographs and selfies (and don’t forget to grab your photo with Santa too!).  Each Celebrity Guest will also offer professional photo ops and a Q&A panel where they will be taking questions from the audience.  Break out your holiday best for our ugly sweater contest.  Lastly, but most importantly, in the spirit of the season we will be collecting for Toys for Tots. So bring a toy and help us give a better Christmas to so many children this year."

Also fun to note,  Christmas Con was created by four fabulous females (That's 4 Entertainment), who had a tradition of spending Thanksgiving together, decorating the tree and watching Christmas movies. So they took their love of entertainment and traditions and decided to combine them! Christmas Con was born so that friends and family could make holiday memories together, 'right alongside those stars that were already such a part of our holiday Christmas traditions.'

CHRISTMAS CON IS OFFICIALLY SOLD OUT! (you snooze, you lose! I published this post on October 1st, people!) A note from That's 4 Entertainment from their Facebook page:

10/12/19: Admission tickets are now officially sold out! We have a very limited number of concert tickets left (as of 10/12/19), so get yours now! ğŸŽŸ You CAN attend the concert without a Christmas Con admission ticket. These were unfortunately the last tickets, as the last thing we want is for our attendees not meet the Celebrity Guests they came to see, because of overcrowding. No tickets will be available at the door.

📌 This week, the Hallmark Channel became the official sponsor of Christmas Con! We are so thrilled to have them as our sponsor and to see their incredible immersive booth experience at our event!

➡️ Christmas Con is owned and organized by That's4Entertainment, a group of 4 friends who took their Thanksgiving tradition of watching Christmas movies, and created a place for fans to celebrate these stars we love! We announced this event in July, began selling tickets and our incredible Celebrity guests have been announcing their appearances on their social media. So, by the time the media discovered us, our inventory was already limited.

💙 We want to thank all of you that have been on this ride with us since day 1. To all 🤩 18 of our Celebrity Guests, thank you for believing in us and allowing us to be the ones to celebrate each and every one of you with this event! For those that couldn't get tickets this year, we will be back in NJ and even more cities next year! We can't wait to see all of you there! ğŸ™ŒğŸ»ğŸŽ„ğŸŽ‰
