Become part of a brand new holiday tradition in one of Denver's most flourishing neighborhoods. The first annual Stapleton Christkindl Markt will take place on December 6, 2013, from 5pm until 9pm. We are partnering with the Stapleton MCA to host the market during their Winter Movie on the Green (Elf).
The Market will feature handmade holiday gifts by local artists and craftspeople, traditional German holiday refreshments, a raffle, and festive entertainment.
We are looking for local vendors who create unique items that would make great holiday gifts, as well as artists and entertainers who might compliment the holiday atmosphere (eg. caroling troups, facepainting, & photography).
The Market is sponsored and presented by Denver Wealth Management
. DWM also hosts a similar market in Los Alamos, NM which has become a great success. Last year the market was visited by over 2000 guests, with every vendor returing to host a booth again this year. In Denver, we project 1000 guests just for the movie alone, plus more from Christkindl Markt specific advertising.Requirements for hosting a booth at the 2013 Stapleton Christkindl Markt:

Thursday December 12th 5pm-9pm at the McNichols Building located in Civic Center Park
The first annual Gifted Handmade Market is a unique holiday market with a discussion component led by local civic health club, Warm Cookies of the Revolution
. The market will feature a curated collection of locally handmade goods that showcase Denver’s best local talent. The hour long discussion, which will take place at 6:30pm will focus on the topic of ‘true cost’ of an item. We’ll explore the complex issues that surround both buying local and handmade as well as from global corporations setting the scene for the market.
We are looking for a collection of crafters that will offer a variety of handmade, high-quality products. The historic McNichols Building is in an ideal location for the downtown Denver’s after work crowd so we are expecting high attendance. Since this is the first year of the event, booth fees are being waived and we are asking that vendors donate an item to be raffled off during the event and fill out a brief vendor questionnaire as part of the discussion.
There is room for 20+ vendors and some 6′ tables which can be reserved if needed – just let us know if you would like to reserve a table on the application. (First come, first serve on these!) If you have any questions feel free to email email@example.com
