Performer Needs Assessment

Performer Needs Assessment

Thank you for your interest in performing at Christkindlmarket Des Moines!

The quality of a traditional Christmas market depends on maintaining a high standard of programming. Christkindlmarket Des Moines is dedicated to immersing visitors in a world of folklore and craftsmanship as well as enticing them with traditional, seasonal culinary specialties to provide an experience filled with European elegance and charm. See Google Images of Christmas markets around the world.

We will provide a four-sided, forced-air heated tent at a location to be determined by Christkindlmarket Des Moines event planning committee at Principal Park. A lighted stage within the tent will be provided. The size of the stage in 2019 was 30’ x 16’.

Our performer guide will give you an overview of the needs assessment process and requirements. As soon as you fill out the needs assessment, it will be reviewed internally.
