ABOUT US

History

This event started in 2011 with an emphasis in promoting businesses locally owned and operated by women. It was under the umbrella of the Pickens County Chamber of Commerce as a collaboration of the PWPC (Professional Women of Pickens County) and GMBWN (Georgia Mountain Business Women's Network) who organized, promoted and produced the event in 2011 and 2012.

In 2013, the Expo looked into the future and changed their name to Holiday Market & Expo and broke away from PWPC, GMBWN, and the Pickens Chamber. New board members were added and the event took on a "new life." 2014 saw the event grow and change even more. Additional vendors were added and the proceeds were distributed to charitable organization in the community. 2015 was our largest year thus far with over 100 vendors. A new addition to the weekend was our Friday Night Extravaganza. 2016 continued to grow with more than 150 vendors. Almost $12,000 was distributed to local charitable organizations in the community.
