32 Huts

Sparta Kriskindlmarkt is one of Wisconsin’s BEST and now AWARD-WINNING outdoor Christmas markets with 32 different huts to shop from!
This European-style market includes roasted nuts, Glühwein und Bier, brats and pretzels and much more food served by local non-profit groups.
  **New this year will be our addition of SIX new huts in Love Lock Village, Rentable Warming Igloos in Love Lock Meadows, and New Food Options.**


Creekside Village is home to our concession  stand where you will be able to grab a brat or a Doner Kabob hot off the grill.  Don't leave without first grabbing a Bavarian pretzel or head up to Mueller Square to find a homemade pastry or some roasted nuts.
