Local craft and dog supply vendors include Malted Mutts, Pink House Pups, Pet Wants Lowcountry, Summerlin South Wreaths, Southern Collective Co., Margerite & Motte, Oyster Candle Company, Charleston Craft and Canvas and more. Local food trucks, Lola's Lumpia, Flight, and Holy City Cupcakes will be serving up eats from 12 to 4 pm.

A portion of proceeds from the event will go to support Southern Tails for Precious Paws and Berkeley Animal Center.
“We’re celebrating this season the best way we know how - giving back. We get to host these events safely in our space and give back to worthy organizations in our community,” said Scott Newitt, co-owner of Firefly Distillery. “Of course the holiday season isn’t complete without some new spirits and local products in our gift shop.”
In the spirit of the season, the distillery is also releasing its first ever moonshine sample packs perfect for stocking stuffers. A trio of Peach, Apple Pie and Firefly’s signature White Lightning Moonshine, the 50 mL jars offer a small taste with a big punch. Paired with a gift card to tour the distillery, the sample packs are a winning holiday gift.
