DALLAS, TX – August 2, 2023 – Dallas’ most iconic and beloved holiday traditions to ignite the shopping season, the Chi Omega Christmas Market, is proud to announce the return for the 2023 holiday season. This 46-year tradition will take place Wednesday, Nov. 15 (Premiere Shopping Night) – Saturday, Nov. 18, 2023 in  the Automobile Building at Fair Park.


Chaired by Monica Goulding and Zoe Murphy, the 2023 Chi Omega Christmas Market will feature 200+ merchants and is expected to welcome more than 10,000 shoppers to Fair Park, in search of getting in the holiday spirit. The Chi Omega Christmas Market, donates all proceeds from ticket sales, merchant booth fees and donations to vetted local charities, offers a one-of-a-kind shopping experience showcasing gifts for every person on your list. Merchants who have been selling at the Market for years return for the nostalgic shopping experience; including holiday décor, women’s clothing/accessories, home accents, children’s clothing/toys, food items and more. There are a slew of new, fresh faces this year including sunglasses from Annea Hill and Busy Banners, ideal for children’s gifts. And not to mention, the Market Chairs are sprinkling in merchants that offer a unique service instead of a tangible product for purchase.


“As Co-Chair of this wonderful nonprofit holiday event, I am humbled and grateful for the incredible support and generosity we’ve received from our community,” says Goulding. “It is truly heartwarming to witness the impact of our collective efforts, as we come together to spread joy and make a difference in the non-profits that benefit from Chi Omega Christmas Market. Our event embodies the spirit of giving, compassion, and unity, and I’m thrilled to be part of such a meaningful endeavor.”


“Selecting all of these charities to be part of Chi Omega Christmas Market is like choosing the most vibrant and diverse colors for a masterpiece. Each organization we chose represents a unique brushstroke that contributes to the overall impact of our cause that has been taking place for more than four decades,” Murphy says. “Our merchants are incredible–from time-honored favorites to some new faces this year, I can’t wait to see our shoppers experience  the magic of the Market this November.”
