Kris Kringle Market brings “European Essence” to Rochester Dec. 1-2

Rochester, Mich. – Downtown Rochester’s annual Kris Kringle Market returns this holiday season on Friday, Dec. 1, 4:00-10:00 pm and Saturday, Dec. 2, Noon-10:00 pm.  The market will be located on W. Fourth Street between Main and Walnut and will coincide with The Big, Bright Light Show.

The Kris Kringle Market, presented by Lincoln of Troy, is inspired by the 700 year-old tradition of the European Christmas markets.  Visitors can enjoy food, shopping, entertainment and the ambience of an open-air holiday market.  Offerings include hand-crafted gifts, fresh greens, baked goods, specialty foods, glass blowing and much more. Many popular vendors will be returning, including Bavarian Roasted Almonds Co., Nitsches Meats & Deli, and The Original Strudel Factory.

“The Kris Kringle Market is a main stay of holiday events in Downtown Rochester”, said Alan Smith, Chairman of the Rochester PSD. “The gifts, shopping, food and The Big, Bright Light Show creates a charming atmosphere that really suits Rochester with its heritage and tradition”.

Children can enjoy a visit and photo opportunity with Santa Claus, a free holiday craft, and a chance to play in child-sized gingerbread houses.

Food and beverage will be available in the warming tent.  Visitors can purchase commemorative mugs filled with Gluhwein or enjoy hand-crafted beer from the Rochester Mills Beer Co.

The Kris Kringle Market is exclusively presented by Lincoln of Troy. For more information, please visit or contact the Rochester DDA office at 248/656-0060.
