  • Thank you for your interest in our 5th Annual Christkindlmarket! We've expanded our market hours for 2022 to include Friday evening. The organizers of this event feel this will attract more shoppers, diners, and patrons to our 3-day event. With the success of the previous markets and the help of our vendor and shopper feedback, we have expanded the market to include more vendors, huts, and food options again for 2022!
