“There are few large holiday events that integrate food and art. Assembly Row is the perfect setting for an event that will provide three days of holiday fun and shopping”, said Andrea Simpson, Director of Marketing and Tourism at Assembly Row. “This is the first holiday food truck festival in the region. Adding an artistic component truly creates a modern Christkindl market —with several contemporary twists and a very local feel.”
Friday night, December 6th, will be a 21+ evening — “Holiday Arts & Eats After Dark,” featuring, a beer and hot wine (Gluhwein) area, live local music, food trucks and over 60 Etsy artisans. After Dark attendees will get the first look at artist offerings, perfect for getting a jump on holiday shopping.
Popular area food trucks participating throughout the weekend include Roxy’s Grilled Cheese, the Pasta Pot, Boston Super Dog, Paris Creperie, Bon Me, Kickass Cupcakes, and over a dozen more.
Saturday and Sunday, December 7th-8th, will feature an array of family-friendly holiday activities including a non-alcoholic eggnog and hot chocolate tent, photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus, , a community stage featuring local choral and a capella groups, and of course, the food trucks and the arts market.
