Inspired by the Christkindl Market in Nuremberg, Germany, which began in 1545, the Cleveland Christkindl Market brings cherished German and European traditions with international flair and local charm to Cleveland and will soon grow to become one of the most popular winter attractions in North East Ohio.
The Cleveland Christkindl Market is also the perfect place for teachers and professors of the German language to bring their students. Here they have the opportunity to practice skills at the market with numerous German speaking members. There are several educational activities for students visiting the market events include: A visit by St Nicholas, German Door Prizes, interviews with vendors, Christmas decorations workshop or even singing German holiday songs for all to enjoy. At the market, students get to experience authentic German traditions without having to travel far from home. From Kindergartners to graduate students the message is loud and clear: The Christkindl Market is fun, fun, fun!
Christkindlmarkt Cleveland is Open to Everyone.
Everyone is invited to join in the Spirit of the Market by wearing traditional ethnic or holiday attire.

Here is the information we talked about 'GIFTS FROM GERMANY' CHRISTMAS PAGEANT 
(The 200 year Anniversary of the Song SILENT NIGHT and the WORLD CHILDREN PEACE MONUMENT (WCPM)

As part of the 200 year celebration of the song, Silent Night, what we would like to do is put on about a two hour Christmas Pageant which would include some of the Cleveland bands and dancers, etc. This pageant could be performed a couple of times in December.  At least one time, I think it could be televised and shown on a local channel or on a PBS channel.
I do not know anything about doing this so we would need a Director, Producer to take charge of the whole program. Corporate sponsorship and Grants could also be arranged. If successful it would be an annual event. .
