Roane Chamber Hosts 2nd Annual Jingle & Mingle Market in Kingston
Roane County, Tenn. – After receiving enormous support from the community last year, the Roane Chamber is hosting its 2nd Annual Jingle & Mingle Market on November 13th & 14th. The market will feature 50 local vendors, food trucks, treats in the Jingle Bell Bistro and pictures with Santa (by appointment only!). Shoppers will get into the joy of the season as they shop in a festive atmosphere, which will include holiday music and décor at Roane County’s largest event center, The Barn at Maple Creek in Kingston. With so many vendors in one spot, this event will make early holiday shopping a breeze! The Roane Chamber will also be kicking off its annual Shopping Spree Contest at the Jingle & Mingle Market, giving shoppers the chance to enter the contest at participating vendors.
The 2nd Annual Jingle & Mingle Market will be held at the Barn at Maple Creek on Saturday, November 13th from 10am-4pm and on Sunday, November 14th 1pm-4pm. Admission is $2 for ages 13+ and free for ages 12 and under.
The Barn at Maple Creek will provide a spectacular covered indoor/outdoor space for vendors and shoppers to enjoy and kickoff the holiday shopping season! The event is open to the public so come enjoy Christmas music, cozy up to the fireplace, get your picture made with Santa, eat at the food trucks, and shop unique merchandise from ToBro Bath Company, Heaven’s Gift Children’s Boutique, Rosie’s Farmhouse Life, One Step Closer Vinyl Creations, Everly Blu, and over 50 more fantastic vendors!
Keep your energy up with teas and shakes in the Jingle Bell Bistro, enjoy lunch from one of two food trucks, or satisfy that sweet tooth by grabbing a dessert from local bakers! We will have tables and chairs on the lawn for you to rest your feet while you fill up your bellies and corn hole boards to keep you entertained if you happen to be waiting.
Shoppers will receive a program and map with a list of vendors and their booth locations, so you don't miss a thing. Multiple vendors will be running specials, deals, and discounts only available to individuals who shop at the Jingle & Mingle Market!
"We were so happy with the overwhelming support of the Jingle & Mingle Market last year! We hosted this event during a time when our small business owners, retailers, and home-based businesses needed it the most," said VP of Marketing Kaley Hill, Roane Alliance. "Our team has worked diligently to make this year’s event just as successful for each of our vendors! We encourage everyone to come out to this event to support these local businesses by getting an early start on your Christmas shopping!"
