In light of events in 2020 we cannot gather in the traditional WinterMarkt format, but we can still build our spirit of community and the holidays. WinterPlatz is a community celebration that will be held December 11-13. If you are a local establishments (or a vendor who can work to cohost with a local establishment), you can join in the festive spirit by decorating and offering WinterPlatz specials (such as discounts for guests wearing themed apparel, offering holiday floral arrangements or German food). We want to support our community members looking to dine in, carry out or do a little holiday shopping – want to make sure there will be something for everyone. To participate, please complete a WinterPlatz Package and return to
