The 2022 Sparta Kriskindlmarkt will begin November 25, 2022 and will run Friday’s from 4-8 and Saturday’s from 10am until 8 pm. We will run for four weekends and aim to better “the fest” from last year where we sported 22 booths, 2 dedicated food booths and much, much more. Booth reservations open on Oct 1, 2022 on our website bikesparta.com. Who knows, we may have more booths this year! Stay tuned!
The Sparta WI Kriskindlmarkt opens on Black Friday in 2021. The dates are 26,27 Nov, December 3,4, Dec 10,11 and Dec 17,18. It is advertised on facebook under Sparta Kriskindlmarkt and on bikesparta.com. We are also starting a dedicated Lriskindlmarkt web page.
It is our 7th year, and the market has grown to 22 idylic booths. We serve Gluehwein and have a wonderful atmoshere inside Mueller Square, and in our new area of Creekside Village in the beautiful area next to the Love Lock Bridge over Beaver Creek in our Down Town.
Thank you, Reinhard! Your market has been added to our list.
