4th Annual Alpine Village Christmas Faire

December 9 & 10

We are hosting our 4th annual Alpine Village Christmas Fair inspired by the traditional outdoor markets that can be found across Germany during the holiday season!!

Seasonal food, goods & Gifts

We love celebrating the holidays! Christmas Faire is an indoor-outdoor market with festive events for the whole family. This time of year at Alpine Village brings cheer, good food and shopping – with a distinct German feel. From our housemade batch of Gluhwein at the Restaurant to hard-to-find European treats, we have a lot of goodies to delight our guests. And of course, it wouldn’t be a Christmas Faire if we didn’t have a selection of holiday gift items for your list:

  • Specialty gift vendors
  • Seasonal import foods
  • Fresh baked goods
  • Alpine Market holiday preorders available
