A Mittelaltermarkt or Middle Age Market is a German version of a Renaissance fair.  Our Middle Age Market will focus mostly on crafters this year.  Over 1000 Mittelaltermarkts are held in Germany each year. 

Since this is close to Halloween and is a Middle Age related event, all workers, vendors and attendees are encouraged to dress up in period attire.  Basically any costume you might see on Game of Thrones, Vikings, Robin Hood, William Tell, Merlin, King Arthur, Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, Robin Hood movies or TV shows for example.

Food being served will include:  bratwurst, pork schnitzel, sauerkraut, German potato salad, currywurst and Bavarian pretzels.  Hot chocolate, hot cider and Glühwein will be available.  Glühwein is a hot spiced wine.  Softdrinks, beer and wine will also be available.  Ice Cream specialties can also be purchased.

Crafters will be setup until at least 5pm.  Food will be served until 6pm or until it runs out.

Anyone who is interested in being a vendor should call or text Jeff Pulfer at 309-621-1813.
