For the third year in a row the Kerrytown District Association (KDA) offers the community a taste of the German holiday tradition with their version of Chriskindlmarkt known as the KindleFest Market. The Ann Arbor Farmers Market will play host to farmers, artisans and other vendors selling a wide range of holiday wares. The Tübingen Sister City Group of Ann Arbor will help add some German cultural flair with pretzels, bratwursts, roasted nuts, Glühwein (a mulled wine) and of course beer! Cozy up to the fire pits and enjoy strolling musicians, caroling and a special appearance from Santa. The KindleFest Market takes place during Downtown Ann Arbor’s Midnight Madness so patrons can take time out from shopping til they drop to enjoy some German holiday festivities. 6-10pm. Kerrytown Market & Shops, 407 North Fifth Ave. 734-662-5008. www.kerrytown.com
