Christkindlmarkt to Celebrate German Traditions

September 2018

Dear Friend of the Germanic Cultures,

A special holiday market will open once more in Frontier Town, Downtown Cave Creek in December 2018: The Arizona Center for Germanic Cultures, Inc. is happy to present for the tenth time: Christkindlmarkt in Frontier Town. In this exciting seasonal event we celebrate the holiday traditions of Central and Northern Europe with residents of and visitors to Phoenix, Arizona on December 8, 2018 from 10am to 8pm, and on December 9, 2018 from 10am to 5pm.

Inspired by the Germanic holiday markets, the Christkindlmarkt team will share the traditions of St. Nikolaus and the Christkind, the markets namesake, with the market goers in a colorfully lit and decorated setting. Guests will be able to take in the holiday spirit by listening to joyful music, shopping at glass artists, book and candle sellers, and others offering holiday gifts while the kids will visit St. Nikolaus.

The holiday crowd will find a heart-warming air filled with Christmas presentations, flavors of Nuremberger Bratwurst and Sauerkraut with Gl├╝hwein (mulled wine) or hot apple cider and hot chocolate for the kids. Wafts of gingerbread spice, holiday cookies and candies, and some of the best old world chocolates around will send Cave Creek residents and visitors from the greater Valley of the Sun into the holidays.

Please help us make this event a success! The first 9 years drew hundreds of visitors to the Christkindlmarkt in Downtown Mesa, Downtown Phoenix, and the Stagecoach Village in Cave Creek. With your generous sponsorships, exhibits, and vending of holiday fare we will bring them back to Frontier Town this year.
