Market Celebrating German, Austrian Culture to Debut in Herndon

For the first time ever in Herndon, the Herndon WinterMarkt will let community members gather and take part in European holiday festivities.

The event offers food, crafts, drinks, shopping opportunities and entertainment from noon to 8 p.m. at the Herndon Depot Museum (717 Lynn Street) this Saturday (Dec. 14).

This is the first time the event has been held in Herndon, and Mayor Lisa Merkel said it will become an annual tradition to celebrate German and Austrian culture, which is prevalent in the Herndon area.

German Ambassador Niels von Redecker will be in attendance, according to Merkel’s Facebook page.

All ages are welcome to attend this free event. Though many vendors take Venmo and credit cards, the event page suggested that people also bring cash.

“I’m kicking it off at 12:30 [p.m.] with a big toast and German band, so see ya there,” Merkel said in a Facebook video.
