Christkindl Markt, a cherished Canton holiday tradition,
celebrates its 47th year on November 9, 10 and 11. 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.
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 more than 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 make sure 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 they can relax in quiet surroundings.
Artists accepted into the show will be listed on the Christkindl Markt/Canton
