Set to happen November 8–10 in New Jersey, the first annual Christmas Con already has a long list of Hallmark Channel stars lined up to mix and mingle with fans.

For many loyal viewers, the holiday season can't begin unless there are Christmas movies airing on the Hallmark Channel. But, we've got some exciting news for all of you Hallmark fans out there.

This year not only brings a huge lineup of Christmas movies to the network, BUT it also brings a brand-new event: Christmas Con. And it's all in honor of Hallmark's "Countdown to Christmas" event, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.

Christmas Con not your average holiday fair either. It's a three-day extravaganza of all things Christmas; there will be elves, a special appearance by Santa Claus himself, a Christmas Market, ugly sweaters, and plenty of celebrity guest autograph and photo opportunities. Some big Hallmark Channel names are set to be in attendance, including Jonathan Bennett, Alicia Witt, Paul Greene, Cameron Mathison, Jackée Harry, Holly Robinson Peet, Melissa Joan Hart, Chad Michael Murray, Lacey Chabert, Danica McKellar, and Jack Wagner, among many others.

What: Christmas Con
When: November 8-10

We are overwhelmed with the amazing response to #ChristmasCon! 🤩 But one question we keep getting is, what exactly is #ChristmasCon? 🤔 Christmas Con is a first of its kind convention…think #comiccon Con meets small town Holiday Festival. Under a big Christmas tree, Santa welcomes you into “Town Square”, where you can meet our Celebrity Guests from your favorite Christmas movies for autographs and selfies (and don’t forget to grab your photo with Santa too! 🎅). Each Celebrity Guest will also offer professional photo ops (schedule and sales coming soon) and a Q&A panel (schedule coming soon). In our “Christmas Market” you can buy one of a kind holiday gifts, handmade decorations and festive Holiday treats. Break out your holiday best for our ugly sweater contest and on Saturday night enjoy a very special concert from one of your favorite stars! Lastly, but most importantly, in the spirit of the season we will be collecting for Toys for Tots. So bring a toy and help us give a better Christmas to so many children this year. That and more is what you can expect from Christmas Con. We have SO many amazing announcements coming up, so stay tuned next week for more!!! 🥳 ➡️ Get your tickets now!
