1st Annual Kris Kringle Market

christkindleMark your calendar for the 1st Annual Traditional German Kris Kringle Market. The Kris Kringle Market will be held this year on December 6 & 7, 2014 from 9 am – 11 pm at the Morgantown Market Place.

What is the Kris Kringle Market, you ask?

It’s a holiday celebration for all ages. Located at the corner of Fayette and Spruce Streets at the Morgantown Market Place, the Kris Kringle Market will host up to 30 vendors, including 10 artisans from the Tamarack. Based on European traditional holiday markets, festivities will include local vendors and artisans, children’s activities, Santa Claus, a reindeer, and authentic German holiday foods and Gluehwein (spiced hot wine).

Who is organizing this market, and why?

  1. I am trying to place the picture you have on your Kris Kringle Market webpage but cannot figure out the location. Is the picture even taken in Morgantown?

  2. Hi Chris,

    That is an image of a traditional European Christkindle Markt, which is what our Kris Kringle Market is based on. Our event will be held at the Morgantown Market Place (at the intersection of Spruce and Fayette Streets), and hopefully we will have some great photos of the Morgantown Market Place decked out like the Chriskindle Markt after our first event!
