November 20 - November 21
Get into the holiday spirit with seasonal music, bring the kids to visit Father Christmas,
enjoy delicious German food, and shop for handmade gifts at our German-style Christmas Market!
KRISKINDLMARKT looks and smells like a European Christmas village. Last year we welcomed more than 1000 guests and we’ve grown into a “can’t miss” event in the Alleghany Highlands!
Enjoy “The Mill” (our repurposed, unheated 100+ year old lumber mill behind the School) filled with laughter, lights, holiday scents & cheer, shopping & entertainment! German Father Christmas will make a visit! Live music throughout the event. Dress warmly.
ARTISAN CRAFTS: Wood-turned bowls, cutting boards, fresh greenery, hand-made sweaters, felted wool hats, bags & purses, blacksmith-forged items, soaps & lotions, pottery, antique tiles, knit & crochet arts, photography, painted art, jewelry, Christmas ornaments, candies & chocolate, decorative gourds, quiltings, designer wreaths, brooms & brushes, maple syrup & baked goods!
THE MILL CAFE & BAR: European-style breads & pastries, German beer & authentic Gluhwein (for ages 21+), mulled apple cider & cold beverages. Fabulous German food choices for your dining-in or take-out pleasure. The Cafe & The Gallery (upstairs) provides seating to diners. Frauhlein helpers will assist diners in transporing meals & drinks upstairs to their seats as needed.
ENTRY FEE: $2 cash admission; Free for children 12 and younger. Dress warmly.
RAFFLES & SILENT AUCTION: Raffles of artisan-made items from KRISKINDLMARKT vendors & donors. Tickets are sold during the event with drawings done at event close (winners do not need to be present). Many beautiful items are also featured in a Silent Auction. Proceeds benefit Clifton Forge School of the Arts, the community art school of the Alleghany Highlands.
