The tradition of Christmas markets goes back to at least the late 1300s in Saxony, Germany, and has spread throughout the world over the centuries. We even have at least a couple of them now in Alabama. Perhaps you’ve already heard about the new Christkindlmarkt in Cullman, which expanded to five weeks of activities this year.
We have another enchanting European holiday market in Huntsville, Alabama that you do not want to miss coming up this weekend, Dec. 8-10: Christkinkdlmarket presented by Redstone Federal Credit Union at The Orion Amphitheater.
To see the full schedule of Winter Park events and hours beyond this weekend’s Christkindlmarket event, visit The Orion website.
If you’ve not visited The Orion and decided to go to this market, be prepared to start making plans to see a show there. I was blown away when I finally caught a concert there this fall and have only heard good things about it from other people. Here’s a link to get tickets for upcoming concerts.
Let us know if you caught this event last year, and fill us in if you go this weekend. We’d love to hear your thoughts about your experience.
