Coming this holiday season!

Nestled in the heart of Mass Avenue’s Arts District, you’re invited to eat, drink, and be merry this holiday season at our inaugural Athenaeum Christkindlemarkt!

Here, you’ll find the traditional festival elements (music, cheesy raclettes, gluhwein and plenty of platzchen to go around) are just the foundation for special storytelling traditions unique to our rich, German culture. Your family will love our Sankt Nikolaus Fest and Krampusnacht.

This is your chance to gather with friends and family, and connect with a bigger community to celebrate the magic and wonder of the holiday season in our historic Biergarten.


Interested in becoming a vendor at the 2022 Athenaeum Christkindlmarkt?

The Athenaeum Christkindlmarkt will feature local crafters, artisans, German inspired food, beverage, and entertainment. The Biergarten provides a unique setting for vendors and market goers to experience an age-old tradition just in time for the holiday season. Our custom built outdoor huts keep within the true spirit of a Christkindlmarkt.
