And if you are visiting during the second weekend (December 6-8), you will get to meet live reindeer and take your photo with Santa!

Each paid admission receives five $1 vouchers to be used at any booth in the market, including food and beverage. Vouchers may be used one per booth, per purchase, per person.

Food & Beverages
Indulge in gluhwein, a traditional hot spiced wine, as you walk through the lights and market. The gluhwein will be served in commemorative mugs with a $5 deposit. After enjoying your wine, keep the mug or return it and we will refund your deposit. Beer, wine and spirits will also be available, along with traditional German foods.
We are looking for Oregon-based craft/handmade vendors of high quality for this event. They will have an enclosed and lighted booth. If you are interested, please email Mary at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are currently accepting vendor applications.
We are also currently seeking local musicians and musical groups to perform at the event. This would preferably be a roaming performance; however, we may be able to accommodate stationary choirs. If interested, please email Mary at email@example.com.
