Christkindlmarkt

Friday, Nov. 30, to Sunday, Dec. 2
If you see a tall, elderly chap with a long white beard wearing a long cloak in the vicinity of South 15th Street and Lewis Avenue, be especially kind. It could be Father Christmas on his way to the German-American Society of Tulsa’s Christkindlmarkt 2012, Friday-Sunday. Modeled on the famous outdoor Christmas market held in Nuremburg since the 17th century, Christkindlmarkt will have vendors of holiday items imported from Germany, ornaments, gifts, baked goods, delicious German food and other wares for sale inside the GAST building, 2301 E. 15th St. Also look for children’s events, such as puppet shows, and appearances by Germany’s St. Nikolaus and others. Admission is free. More information is available at www.gastulsa.org.
