Woodstock Arts is bringing a traditional German Christmas market to downtown Woodstock this weekend.
Christkindl Market, part of Woodstock Arts’ festival series, will start at 11 a.m. Sunday and is scheduled to be open until 6 p.m. at the Woodstock Arts Event Green, 113 Elm St.
The market will be designed much like a traditional German Christmas market, with traditionally dressed carolers, food, activities for the whole family, local artists and crafters and a special performance from the cast of Woodstock Arts’ “A Christmas Carol.”
Activities include wreath making, gingerbread decorating, local music happening throughout the day and more.
At the end of the evening there will be classic holiday shorts played on the Woodstock Arts LED Screen.
“The first programming started on the Woodstock Arts Event Green was the Lantern Series,” said Brian Gamel, managing director. “The goal of the Lantern Series is to bring different cultures, ideas, and people together to celebrate our commonalities and our differences. With the organization’s continued growth, we have decided to expand that concept to include cultural festivals throughout the year. This season, these festivals include the Christkindl Market, Art on the Green and a Juneteenth festival in 2023. We are excited to celebrate the plethora of traditions in North Georgia and foster a more vibrant and shared community.”
All the Woodstock Arts festivals are free to attend.
