Christmas Carousel is the annual fundraising event of the Junior League of Abilene, and funds the League’s community projects throughout the year. These projects focus on meeting the needs of women and children in our community. The event began in 1981, and this year we celebrate the 42nd annual event.
Christmas Carousel is a juried show of merchants from across the country. Space in each category is limited in order to ensure a variety of merchandise and to allow merchants to maximize their full sales potential. Please complete the online application as soon as possible in order to be considered for selection in our market. We also encourage you to view the Christmas Carousel Merchants 2023.
Throughout the weekend, thousands of guests attend our Market Hall and signature events. We encourage you to support the Junior League by attending one of our events. To purchase tickets, please click here.
Christmas Carousel is supported annually by many generous individual and business sponsors. You can learn more about sponsorship opportunities here. We thank each of our sponsors, past and present. Without you, this event wouldn’t happen!
We look forward to celebrating the Magic of the Season with all of you on November 2-5, 2023!
