Germania Society Christkindlmarkt

The Germania Society of Cincinnati — whose stated goal is to “maintain and perpetuate the German heritage (in cultural, educational and social life of the German people), and to serve all German people in the Cincinnati area” — is hosting its 21st-annual Christkindlmarkt, a recreation of an authentic Bavarian-style Christmas market at Germania Park.

Expect heated tents full of German music, German food and imported German gifts. There will be dill pickle soup (a favorite of Germania Society fans), bier, spiced gluhwein, strudels, cream puffs, cookies, candies and a cocktail bar, plus steins, nutcrackers, cuckoo clocks, linens and more for sale.

Find a petting zoo, carriage rides, a lantern parade and other holiday entertainment, including a visit from Saint Nicholas and Krampus.

5-10 p.m. Friday (Nov. 16); 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday (Nov. 17); noon-5 p.m. Sunday (Nov. 18). $3; free for 12 and under. Germania Park, 3529 W. Kemper Road, Colerain, germaniasociety.com.
