The mission of the Herndon WinterMarkt is to provide the Town of Herndon and surrounding area with a wintertime family destination by providing engaging and authentic European holiday experiences. Our participants look forward to food, beverage, and artisan vendors, all with the spirit of Christmas, Europe, and community in mind. We are seeking vendors committed to partnering with Herndon WinterMarkt in order to provide this experience to our visitors and community. If this sounds like a good fit, we hope you will consider applying! Please keep in mind that the Herndon WinterMarkt is an outdoor “winter” market and vendors should plan to be in operation in cold temperatures. For more information about costs and logistics, download a copy of our 2023 Vendor Package. If you are interested in becoming a Herndon WinterMarkt vendor, please review the package in detail and submit the following Vendor Application.
The Herndon WinterMarkt is also extending its vendor community through a virtual market (located on the Vendors page). You may choose to be included in this event with marketing options that include social media and website engagement throughout the season or year. You will be required to provide your own website and point-of-sale and shipping systems.
We’ve had wonderful German bands, tubas, traditional dance groups, skits and more. If you have a unique idea for entertainment or fit in any of the performance categories noted, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Herndon WinterMarkt offers a spectacular blend of traditional German/European foods and gifts, coupled with fun entertainment set in historic downtown Herndon. In 2023, more than 10,000 people came to the market to enjoy, explore and make cherished memories. Consider partnering with us, and be a part of this year’s holiday memories. In addition to the predetermined sponsorship levels, the market is happy to discuss customized sponsorship packages. Sponsorships can be from individuals and companies alike and range in value to fit every budget. In addition, sponsorships provide a unique opportunity to reach our expansive audience via advertising on our website and social media outlets before, during, and after the event. Please review the 2023 Sponsorship Packages and contact email@example.com to express your interest in partnering with WinterMarkt.
This spectacular event offers volunteers the opportunity to be WinterMarkt Holiday Helpers and celebrate the season with the thousands of visitors who attend. Helpers will serve as the face of the market in roles such as greeters, glühwein and beer handlers and helping to keep the market in tip-top shape.
