European Market brought crowds, reindeer and Gluehwein to Shain Park in Birmingham

Similar to outdoor markets found in Germany, market attendees enjoyed delicious European food and drinks.

Birmingham - Thousands braved the chilly temps to enjoy the City of Birmingham’s fourth annual Birmingham Winter Markt in Shain Park last weekend. The European-style market offered 42 vendors featuring a wide variety of holiday décor, furniture, holiday greens, children’s clothing, jewelry, candles and other unique gift items.

Similar to outdoor markets found in Germany, market attendees enjoyed delicious European food and drinks. One top seller at the event was Glühwein, a warm and spicy traditional German wine.

“The event itself really is unique and special. We work hard to incorporate local schools and non-profits to make it a true community event,” said John Heiney, executive director of the Birmingham Principal Shopping District. “There’s excitement in the air in Shain Park, and a spirit of camaraderie as the community comes together to celebrate this very special time of year.”

Attendees also enjoyed ice carving demonstrations, roaming winter princesses, live reindeer, warming stations, a Kinderhaus children’s activity area, the popular Santa House, horse-drawn carriage rides and live entertainment. WOMC 104.3 broadcast live at the event.

The event was hosted by the Birmingham Winter Markt Committee in cooperation with Birmingham’s Principal Shopping District.
