The market’s general manager, Joshua Seeberg, says “The 2012 market is 45 percent larger than the prior year and we have more German and European vendors with Christmas items. We are seeing about 30 percent more visitors to the Market than last year confirming the desirableness of the items offered by our vendors.” The Market's daily entertainment program is readily available on the market’s Website (www.DenverChristkindlMarket.com).
He also advised that the Market’s heated holiday party tent is still available for last minute office or family holiday celebrations with its unique cheery atmosphere of the Christkindl Market for a very different venue.
