Have a beer. Shop for unique holiday gifts. Enjoy tasty German food. You call do all of those activities – -at the same time!! –this weekend (Dec 4 and 5, 2015) at the annual Kristkindl Markt at Brookside’s Country Club Congregational United Church of Christ, 205 W 65th St.
This German food and beer festival is a tradition in Armour Hills, and all are welcome. Large tents are set up, filled with chairs and tables so you can dine on several kinds of German food and beer. And if you need to stretch your legs after filling your tummy…walk around the vendor booths, selling various homemade décor, crafts and gifts. Kids always love the gingerbread house making area—with donations going to Operation Breakthrough. Live music keeps the atmosphere festive!
If you plan to visit the Kristkindl Markt, remember the narrow residential streets around the church get very crowded with vehicles. Better to park a few blocks away and walk to the event. The festival is open Friday night from 5pm-9pm and Saturday from 10am-7pm.
