The fair takes place Nov. 12 · 10 a.m. – 7 p.m., located at 205 Medway River Road.
The name Christkindel comes from Europe, an old world flair she wanted to bring to Mill Village.
“Villages would have huge markets. They would close streets and have hundreds of people out to buy Christmas baked goods and items.”
Mueri says she wanted to bring something like that to Mill Village, on a smaller scale. She says so far the response has been really positive, and word is spreading quickly about the festival
There are still tables available for rent, so anyone interested can contact Mueri at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 298-9725
So far about 20 tables have been booked, with plenty of variety for people to choose from.
“There are so many different types of things to draw people,” she says.
Becky MacDonald will be there raising money for her diabetes climb next year, painter Laurie Clattenburg has a table, and photographer Brittany Wentzell will showcase her business. Mueri will also have a line of horse themed products for sale as well, with lots of things aimed at children.
Mueri has wanted to do something to promote Mill Village for a while now, and the original idea was to hold a pony ride day.
“After I opened the stables in May, I felt it only hit a certain target of people,” she says.
Since the stables have a large indoor arena however, the idea grew into holding a larger event with artisans, pony rides and non-profits all under the same roof.
“Having pony rides gives it a whole other twist.”
