LIVE: Christkindlmarkt Grows Into Larger Venue For 2021

Christkindlmarkt Moving To Fargo Civic Center

 

FARGO, N.D. (KVRR) — A newer tradition is back on for the holidays this year in downtown Fargo.

Christkindlmarkt festivities were put on hold last year due to COVID.
But the four-day event is back starting this Thursday.
They had to expand to a larger venue this year.

It’s taking over the inside and outside of the Fargo Civic Center with a beer garden and a winter wonderland with Christmas gifts, lit trees, fireplaces, s’mores and other Holiday goodies.
Up to 40 performances are scheduled.
You can also buy limited-edition locally-made Christkindlmarkt mugs and Christmas ornaments.

Simone Wai with Folkways shares why the ornaments are special. She explains, “These are wood-cut ornaments designed locally again my Jeff Knight and made at the Vocational Training Center just south of downtown. That is a non-profit that employs folks with disabilities to make all kinds of these including these wooden ornaments.”

Christkindlmarkt runs from Thursday, November 18th through Sunday the 21st.
