A wonderful opportunity to find the most special holiday gifts, while also helping support artists and small businesses and all in a European setting.

For the very first time ever, downtown New Glarus, Wisconsin, will play host to a completely outdoor Christmas Market (Christkindli).

The New Glarus Christkindli Market happens the weekend of December 11th, 12th and 13th (Friday-Sunday).

New Glarus Brewing Co. is a big supporter of the event, which should come as great news for anyone heading up from Illinois. Now you can grab gifts for others, and come home with a case of Spotted Cow for yourself.

Decorated mini chalets will be in downtown New Glarus for The Christkindli Outdoor Market, offering tons of locally made and sourced gifts, along with Christmas decorations and foods.
