A Shopping SPREE! 2020 canceled, stay tuned for virtual events!

After thoughtful consideration during this unprecedented pandemic, the Junior League of Raleigh has decided to cancel A Shopping SPREE! 2020. Out of concern for the safety of our exhibitors, shoppers and JLR members, we unfortunately must postpone this event until next year.

A Raleigh tradition for more than 30 years – this year’s event was originally scheduled for November 19 – 22 at the Raleigh Convention Center. Our decision was made primarily due to current state regulations and the feasibility of hosting such a large event where 10,000 – 12,000 shoppers were expected.

Our dedicated team was excited to plan A Shopping SPREE! this year and has been working to craft several virtual opportunities for holiday shopping fun! We will soon be sharing information on the following 2020 SPREE! virtual events:

  • Best of SPREE! Boxes
  • Online Silent Auction
  • SPREE! Raffle

Check back here for updates! Thank you for your understanding and continued support of the
Junior League of Raleigh.

About A Shopping SPREE!

A Shopping SPREE! – a Raleigh tradition for over 30 years – is considered the area’s premier and most original shopping event.  This annual four-day shopping fundraiser, usually held at the Raleigh Convention Center, showcases regional and national exhibitors for shoppers seeking the latest in fashion and home decor trends, unique gifts and holiday merchandise. This is a juried event ensuring a well-balanced selection of products and quality merchandise.

Proceeds from A Shopping SPREE! help support the Junior League of Raleigh’s Center for Community Leadership and community projects, particularly in the League’s focus area of promising youth.  The League has donated more than $1.6 million and more than 237,000 volunteer hours to programs and projects that impact youth in our community such as BackPack Buddies, SAFEchild, Brentwood Boys & Girls Club, StepUp Ministry, Helping Horse, Heritage Park Community Learning Center, Kids on the Block and AventWest Children’s Mentoring.
