Christkindl Markt opens Friday at the Cultural Center for the Arts

by Maranda Saling

I know what you’re thinking…. Another craft show? Thanks, but no thanks. But hear me out! This is not your average craft show! Featuring artisans from across the United States, this show brings to our downtown, the highest quality creations in glass, painting, ceramics, photography, jewelry, textiles, floral arrangements, woodworks, holiday items and more. What could be better than getting the perfect gift from an artist passionate about what they do? How about the fact that all proceeds from Christkindl Markt benefit exhibition and education programming of the Canton Museum of Art! Such a deserving organization! There have been many exciting changes, exhibits and hiring at the museum that these funds will only continue to support. According to the Canton Museum of Art website:

“Christkindl Markt, a cherished Canton holiday tradition, celebrates its 44th year, November 13, 14 and 15. Presented by Canton Fine Arts Associates, an affiliate group of the Canton Museum of Art, Christkindl Markt is Northeast Ohio’s premier juried, holiday-inspired fine arts and fine crafts show which attracts visitors from across the state.”

Christkindl Markt includes the Christkindl Café and Markt Bistro, offering delicious snacks, lunch and dinner fare on-site. Visitors will also find an array of homemade candies in the Sweet Shoppe, (including Buckeyes, fudge, bark, holiday cookies and more). A used book sale, a shopping spree raffle and silent auction are also popular Markt attractions. Something that excites me and my toes… no strollers!
