Christkindl Markt, a cherished Canton holiday tradition, celebrates its 49th year on November 11 and 12.  Presented by Canton Fine Arts Associates, an affiliate group of the Canton Museum of Art, Christkindl Markt is Northeast Ohio’s premier juried holiday-inspired fine arts and fine crafts show which attracts visitors from throughout the state and region.

Christkindl Markt features artisans from across the United States, showcasing their works within the Cultural Center for the Arts and the Museum. Visitors will discover the highest quality creations in glass, painting, ceramics, photography, jewelry, textiles, floral arrangements, woodworks, holiday items and more.

Christkindl Markt has a reputation for showcasing exceptional fine art and crafts, with nearly 100 artisan booths each year. Entry into the show is juried. Our panel of jurors have extensive art backgrounds in all aspects of fine arts and fine crafts. We do our best to ensure the show has quality and diversity. Our friendly volunteers offer booth sitting so that exhibitors may take a break. We also offer free coffee and tea in the hospitality room where artists can relax in quiet surroundings. Artists accepted into the show will be listed on the Christkindl Markt/Canton Museum of Art website. The show is advertised on social media platforms, newspapers, magazines and other local and regional media. There is free parking onsite. We invite artists and craftsmen with quality art to apply.
