About Christmas in the Woods

We're Celebrating 30 Years in 2024!

Mark your calendars for Old-Fashioned Christmas in the Woods’ 30th year of hosting attendees from across the country at Shaker Woods in Columbiana, Ohio. Quality craftspeople and artisans will gather on October 12-13 and 19-20, 2024. In a manicured, wooded setting, juried costumed crafters will have their booths decorated in an old-fashioned holiday theme. The exhibitors will demonstrate their crafts and sell a wide selection of handmade holiday items, as well as traditional crafts. The level grounds feature gravel footpaths for easy walking and access to acres of free parking. Traditional crafters include candle makers, leatherworkers, woodworkers and doll makers. Hand-thrown pottery and iron and stone work will also be available.  Holiday craft items, decorations and handcrafted Christmas ornaments are featured, in addition to holiday clothing, wreaths and floral arrangements. A delicious selection of food—from made-daily donuts and mouth-watering cobbler to freshly cut french fries and homemade bean soup—is sure to please most appetites.

Old-Fashioned Christmas in the Woods was ranked #1 of the “Top 100 Best Classic & Contemporary Craft Shows” in the September 2020 issue, September 2022 and most recently in the September 2023 issue, of Sunshine Artist, America’s Premier Arts and Craft Show Magazine. In 2021, we were selected #2 Top Show of All-Time from 307 nominated shows. Christmas in the Woods was also mentioned in an article this year from and Hallmark ranking Columbiana as one of the "Top 25 Christmas Towns in the United States."
