The 2016 Kris Kringle Christmas Market December 9-10, 2016  The Charles County Fair welcomes visitors to the continuation of a new tradition: the area’s first Kris Kringle Christmas Market. Modeled after the famous markets in Germany, this fourth annual two-day event at the fairgrounds offers light displays, holiday food, handmade crafts from local artists and crafters, children activities, shopping, music, and much more. The launch of this family-friendly event three years ago was a great success! The Charles County Fair Board and Christmas Market committee want to encourage locals and visitors alike to come out to enjoy the music, shopping, and tasty Christmas treats. The Charles County Garden Club will have fresh holiday decorations available for purchase from local greens collected from their own yards and fields. For more info and pre-ordering forms, click here!   The official tree lighting and arrival of Santa Claus will be held on Friday, December 9th at 5:00 pm. For the latest info, check us out on Facebook! Admission is $1 or one non-perishable food item to benefit The Southern Maryland Food Bank. Hours of Operation Friday, December 9th: 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. Saturday, December 10th: 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
