Join the German Club this year for our 4th annual Christmas Market! Christmas Markets are a staple of German culture and have been for centuries. Here at Rollins we offer our own twist to the traditional Christmas Market right in the center of campus on Bush Lawn, further enriching part of our College's mission to educate global citizens! This year's market will be our largest and most exciting yet, including over 25 vendors from around the Rollins, Winter Park, and Orlando area! Some of our most popular vendors include:
- Hot and fresh German Food (Bratwurst, Currywurst, Pomme Frites, with vegitarian options as well!)
- Freshly made Kettle Korn
- Liquid Nitrogen Ice-cream
- A caricature booth
- Photo with Santa (oder Krampus)
- A variety of different traditional German festival games for our younger audience, such as:
Dosenwerfen (Ball Toss), Entenangeln (Fishing for Ducks), Pfennigwerfen (Coin Toss), Eierlauf (Egg Run), Luftballon-Pfeilwurf (Balloon Pop), Kinderschminken (Facepainting), Wahrsagerinnen (Fortune tellers) und mehr!
Also present at the Weihnachtsmarkt will be our very own Biergarten! Serving both beer and Glühwein to our 21+ participants. Not to mention several local musicians, including Amanda Lynn Hornberger (singing both German and American Christmas music!), as well as performers from the Winter Park High School!
