Christmas Carousel

(League Members should purchase their tickets through the JLA Store and not this link.)

All events are held at the Abilene Convention Center, 1100 N 6th St, at the intersection of N 6th St and Pine St.

Christmas Carousel is an annual fundraising event led by the Junior League of Abilene. Each year, a new theme is chosen for this holiday shopping extravaganza. Throughout the weekend, thousands of guests are expected to attend our annual event. Carousel is such an important event because it helps fund the League’s projects all year. We encourage you to support the Junior League by attending one of our fabulous holiday events. You can learn more about sponsorship opportunities here.

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas as the Junior League of Abilene is getting ready for 2022 Christmas Carousel! Your support and generosity year after year enables us to fund the many service projects we are involved in. These projects focus on meeting the needs of women and children in our community. For more specific information regarding our service projects, please visit

Thank you for your generous contributions throughout the years. We look forward to having some Holly, Jolly Fun at Christmas Carousel with all of you on November 3rd-6th!
