As Vaillancourt Folk Art celebrates 35 years of traditions, we’re pleased to present our first retail show that will feature the industries most respected and detailed artists. When Vaillancourt Folk Art first began their business, it was through exhibiting at Artisan shows around the country. This Christkindlesmarkt & Artisan Showis a tip of the hat to our formidable years, while being able to offer some of the highest quality American Artists within a space decorated to resemble the German Christmas markets. While the Vaillancourt Retail Gallery will import exceptionally high quality German products, the main event is the Mass Live sponsored Artisan Retail Stalls,built to house some of America’s finest craftspeople.
In addition to the Mass Live sponsored Artisan Retail Stalls, Vaillancourt’s production studio will be transformed to an intimate indoor marketplace with The Queen’s Cupsselling gingerbread and Christmas cookies and sponsored vendors showing their Christmas spirit. Outdoors, under an open sided tent, the Food & Beverage Pavilion will be decorated with live Christmas trees while the smells of Stillman Quality Meats‘ German Sausages mingles through the air with traditional German pastries—Apfelstrudel, Peffernuesse, Baumkuchen, Spekulatius, Hazelnut Corners, and Schupfnudeln—sold by Fraulein’s Bakery. In addition to food available for sale, there will be a selection of fine Christmas beers, the 2019 limited edition Vaillancourt Christmas Wine, and a German imported glühwein for sale—limited quantities of the glühwein collector’s mug will be available to Friday’s VIP admission!
