KindleFest returning to the Ann Arbor Farmers Market

By Staff

The second annual KindleFest Market will be held in the Ann Arbor Farmers Market on Friday, December 3 from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m.

The KindleFest Market, or "Christkindlmarkt," as it is known in Germany, will feature artisans, farmers and retailers selling their holiday wares, plus traditional food, mulled wine and beer. Kerrytown area retail businesses will be open late on this evening as they participate in the festivities, offering special holiday bargains.

KindleFest was created by several merchants in the Kerrytown District last year to add to the already festive Midnight Madness taking place throughout downtown Ann Arbor. The event was a success, with hundreds of people gathering to kick off the holiday season.

Plus, this year, the KDA is teaming up with the Tübingen Sister City Group of Ann Arbor to add more German Chriskindlmarkt cultural traditions to the event. Family-friendly, and keeping in the spirit of an outdoor holiday market, there will be pretzels, bratwursts, roasted nuts, Glühwein (a mulled wine) and beer, fire pits to keep warm and for s’more roasting, caroling, strolling musicians, Santa, lots of lights, and more. For additional information, or to learn how you can participate in KindleFest as a vendor, contact Karen Farmer at 734-662-5008.
