German-themed Christmas market coming to Sandusky this weekend

SANDUSKY — Christmas markets started in Europe. But thanks to immigrants traveling to the U.S. who brought their traditions along, Americans can experience the “Christkindlmarkt” without traveling across the globe.

The Boeckling Club will transform into an authentic German holiday market on Saturday to allow visitors to try German traditions and delicacies.

“Sandusky has a strong German heritage, and there really aren’t any German establishments here,” said Tom Bodner, owner of the Boeckling Club on Columbus Avenue.

The Christmas Market will go from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Traditional sounds of German Christmas market will fill the air this weekend, and, perhaps, the sounds might even invoke cravings of sausage and beer.

No German market would be complete without the aroma of beer, pastries, sausages, sauerkraut and pretzels. 

Additionally, patrons will find a wide range of hand-crafted gifts and merchandise from 20 vendors.

The Christmas Market is hoping the event will encourage the spirit of giving in Sandusky by enticing people to donate food to a local food pantry.

“A monetary donation or packaged food item will be collected as the entrance fee and will be donated to a local food pantry,” a news release states.
