We are thrilled to be gearing up for Christkindlmarket 2023. This year’s market sees the return of patron favorites and new vendors to entice and excite! The Silent Auction is no different. We have nine returning nonprofits and three new organizations waiting to showcase amazing trees for our market goers to bid on, take home, and enjoy for the remainder of the holiday season.
The Silent Auction will begin the first day of the market, Thursday, November 30 at 5pm and conclude Sunday, December 3 at 5pm. Winning bidders will be notified via our text-to-bid platform and all trees will be wrapped and ready for pick up between 5:30pm and 7:30 pm Sunday evening directly following the end of Christkindlmarket 2023.
