It’s the Most Wonderful Time… for a Beer
The holidays are all about families, so who decided we should squander our tryptophan buzz getting trampled at a local Wal-Mart?
Reject the commercialism of Black Friday and instead join us in Excelsior as we kick off advent in style with the traditional German festival known as Christkindlsmarkt.
Running Friday through Sunday Thanksgiving weekend, the all-ages festival offers Christmas crafts for the kids, music, traditional German food, a beer garden and much more.
Even St Nick himself is scheduled to make an appearance and he’s bringing live reindeer and a sleigh to add to the holiday revelry.
The fire pits will be lit, the brews will be flowing and the air filled with music.
Friday: 6-8pm David Leduc, 9-11pm Chris Kelly Band.
Saturday: 2-5pm Alpensterne for your German needs. Soon after, we turn it up w/ Alive (Pearl Jam) from 6-8pm, then Subliminal (Sublime) 9-11pm.
The fun begins at 10 am on Friday and runs throughout the weekend so grab the kids and head over for a pretzel, a pint and some holiday fellowship. It is truly a tradition like no other.
Christkindlsmarkt: light on vowels, but heavy on family fun.
