Are you ready for another great year at Ss Peter & Paul? By popular demand, the event has been moved a week later to the first Saturday in December, that is December2 this year.
We are planning to add more live entertainment and expand our already enormously successful direct mail campaign. Last year was our best year ever with around 500 visitors. This year we are also calling on YOU to improve the experience that keeps people and vendors coming back year after year by introducing a contest that will help you attract buyers and encourage visitors to continue to return.
Please download our 2023 Vendor Application & Guide and reserve your spot. Avoid the waiting list! Reservations are accepted in the order in which they have been received.

Best Vendor Display Contest
Volunteers have donated many thousands of hours carefully crafting an authentic Old World atmosphere for Christkindlmarkt. They continue to spend hundreds of hours every year in setup and assembly to make this an event that draws more visitors every year. Everything from lighting and decor to available food and drink to the design of the vendor market stalls and sales table displays are intended to extend this feel throughout the venue. We encourage you to carry this through in your sales areas.
An attractive display attracts buyers.
Wrapping paper or fabric make for great backdrops Add a riser to your tables for a second tier Ask us for leg extensions if you want your table level with the window ledge.
You may use clips or pins in the 2x2 wooden frames to hang items from the walls and windows To avoid overloading circuits, please ask about any electrial items you may want to add. LED lighting only! If you want to decorate your area the day before the event, please contact us to schedule access. This is especially important for sales tables since they will not be set up until Friday, Dec. 1. No ladders are to be used (the insurance company frowns on that).
Visitors will receive two tickets to be desposited with what they viewas the best market stall and best table displays. Tickets voting will end at 6:30 PM and prizes awarded before the end of the event. Best Market Stall prize is $100. Best Sales Table prize is $50. In the event of a tie, prizes will be evenly split among winners.
