Imagine an authentic Bavarian Christmas Market in Germany. Now imagine that great holiday feature happening in the heart of Hagerstown, Maryland, a city rich in German heritage and culture. Main Street Hagerstown is excited to present the inaugural Christkindle Markt in the Public Square of Downtown Hagerstown. This one day event will allow patrons to enjoy festival food, music, and entertainment, while enjoying the many offerings that Downtown Hagerstown has to offer. A large part of making this event successful is having a great variety of craft and dessert vendors so that attendees can take their own festive fun home with them.
This year the Christkindle Markt will take place on Saturday, December 2, 2017 from 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The event will be held in conjunction with the City of Hagerstown’s annual City Center Tree Lighting Celebration. The City Center Tree Lighting Celebration regularly draws several thousand attendees and the City looks forward to another year of increased interest and attendance from the community.
We invite you to be one of the Christkindle Markt’s 2017 craft or dessert vendors. If you are interested in this opportunity, please submit the attached application. Entries will be juried by the Main Street Hagerstown Organization in order to maintain variety, quality, and originality.
