We’re Looking Forward to the Kris Kringle Market

The Downtown Rochester Kris Kringle Market is something local families look forward to every year.  The event was inspired by the 700-year old tradition of the open-air Christmas markets throughout Europe. The local outdoor shopping experience will happen this year on December 1-2, 2017 and will feature one-of-a-kind shopping, specialty foods, fresh greens, wreaths and holiday decorations and handcrafted gifts for the holiday.  

This is a kid-friendly event and there will be opportunities for pictures with Santa Claus on both days and stagecoach rides on Express Clydesdale on Saturday. The Kris Kringle Market Rochester 2017 is located on  W. Fourth between Main Street and Walnut Blvd.
