The Christkindl Angel is a tradition of this type of market. A local young girl is crowned as our Angel and reigns throughout the event. Young guests are able to meet the Christkindl Angel during the Christkindl Market weekend as well as Santa and Mrs. Claus who are waiting to greet them in Santa's House.

Our Elf School, taught by local elves and our Christkindl Angel offers fun activities for the little ones.  Elf School is open to all children at no cost.

The Granger Homestead opens its Festival of Trees when our Market opens. For a small additional fee, you can view decorated trees, wreaths and other seasonal decorations donated by local businesses, groups and individuals. Many items are available through silent auction. The Festival of Trees will continue through December 11th! Stop by!

During our Christkindl Market, the much-anticipated Granger Homestead Women's Council Bake Sale, located on the back porch of the mansion, offers
wonderful home baked goodies. So popular that each year it is sold out! What a great way to start your holiday treats collection.
