A popular Northeast Ohio holiday tradition is coming back.

Christmas Connection will be returning to Cleveland's I-X Center for a special "2021 Limited Edition show" from November 19-21. It will be the first consumer-focused event to take place at the I-X Center since its announced reopening last month.

More than 250 exhibitors will be on hand with great gift ideas, featuring everything from crafts, specialty foods and soaps to ornaments, wood creations, jewelry and more.

There will also be live entertainment on the Christmas Connection stage where guests can relax and kick up their feet, singing along to festive entertainment.

“Christmas Connection is a time-honored holiday tradition in Cleveland and Marketplace Events is thrilled to not only bring it back to the I-X Center, but also be able to offer guests a new lower ticket price,” said Show Manager Gina Gumina in a statement. “We hope visitors will enjoy the smaller, boutique-style show with every element designed to help them have a merrier little Christmas this year.”
