Old World Christmas Markets at the Osthoff

Experience the holiday “gemutlichkeit” of a traditional European Christmas Market, reminiscent of the centuries old German Christkindlesmarket. International and regional artisans displaying their specialty wares, European delicacies, German Christmas music and Father Christmas are all part of the 20th annual Old World Christmas Market.

 

“Miracle on 34th Street”

Based on the beloved Christmas movie, Miracle on 34th Street is a big brassy Broadway musical with a heart. Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade needs a new Santa. Enter Kris Kringle – a sweet and jolly old man who claims that he is the real Santa Claus. Thus begins this funny, warm, tuneful, and inspirational musical as Kris has to prove his claim in court and teach his cynical neighbor and her daughter to believe in the goodness and love that is Christmas. Written by Meredith Willson, the creator of “The Music Man,” this is an unforgettable musical version of a classic Christmas tale.

 

The Collingsworth Family are generally considered gospel music’s favorite family. Their harmony is incredibly beautiful and all are multi talented vocalist and instrumentalist. Kim Collingsworth is one of the top concert pianist in the country. You will be blest!
