Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from December 1 to December 23 and weekdays leading to Christmas, vendors will sell sweets and drinks combined with unique art and craft vendors to create a unique shopping experience.
The highly anticipated festival is modeled in similar fashion to Europe’s festive Christmas markets which are popular in countries across the pond like Germany and France. Traditionally the markets would transform outdoor town centers where vendors would take up shop in small wooden stalls. Similarly, the Alexandria’s Holiday Festival will encourage shoppers to “shop outside the box” and come outdoors to the festival to find unique art and craft items, enjoy sweets, and mulled wine. To help get into the holiday spirit, shoppers will also be treated to live entertainment from local musicians.
The Alexandria’s Holiday Market will cater to the whole family and feature a special children’s corner with special kid’s activities and the opportunity to learn about European traditions and culture through a passport booklet.
