Christkindlmarkt: A Celebration of German Holiday Traditions

A traditional celebration held throughout Germany and Central Europe that began in the Middle Ages, Christkindlmarkt will bring the Old World holiday spirit to the Valley on Saturday. From 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Heritage Square in downtown Phoenix will be transformed into a winter wonderland complete with artisan-crafted children's toys, Christmas carolers, and a puppet show. Best of all, there will be food galore, including Neurnberger bratwurst, Gulasch soup, real German Laugenbrezeln (hot soft pretzels), Lebkuchen gingerbread cookies, and roasted chestnuts. Traditional beverages such as hot mulled wine (Gluehwein), apple cider, and German winter beers will also be available.

Crepes & More

Grab a Bite at the Tempe Festival of the Arts

Sure, you can look at art while you're at the Tempe Festival of the Arts, but you can find us checking out the food court. Located on Sixth Street east of Mill Avenue, there will be 10 restaurants feeding festival-goers, including Crepes & More with sweet and savory selections, Blue Banjo catering with tri-tip BBQ sandwiches, and The Alaskan Salmon Grill with fillets, chowder, and pasta. Snack vendors will be placed throughout the festival selling items like chocolate-dipped cake bars, glazed nuts, fudge, and kettle corn.
