November 29, 2019-January 5, 2020
The Oregon Garden, Silverton, OR
Enjoy an immersive holiday event based on a traditional
European-style Christmas Market, where you can
experience the sights, sounds and smells of the season.
Stroll through the forest and our one million lights,
while sipping a warm, spicy gluhwein. Feast on a variety
of international dining options from pizza to fondue.
Explore our Market vendors and find the perfect
Christmas gift. Enjoy music from choirs and cozy up to a
wood-burning fire pit. Those more adventurous will enjoy
ice skating or snowless tubing, while the rest of the
crew watches from the comfort of our fully-covered,
heated tents. Our event is designed for friends and
family to linger, enjoy time together and experience the
traditions that make this time of year so special.

producing a harvest. You will also learn about native
