The Charles County Fair welcomes visitors to the continuation of a new tradition: the areas first Kris Kringle Christmas Market. Modeled after the famous markets in Germany, this fifth annual event at the fairgrounds offers light displays, holiday food, handmade crafts from local artists and crafters, children activities, shopping, music, and much more. Activities will include Santas arrival, Christmas tree lighting, Strolling Carolers, music from local school choruses and bands, an array of sales by local non-profit groups such as the Boy Scouts, childrens activities run by the 4H club, Lighted holiday path and Christmas Village. The launch of this family-friendly event several years ago was a great success! The Charles County Fair Board and Christmas Market committee want to encourage locals and visitors alike to come out to enjoy the music, shopping, and tasty Christmas treats.

The Charles County Garden Club will have fresh holiday decorations available for purchase from local greens collected from their own yards and fields.

The official tree lighting and arrival of Santa Claus will be held on Friday, December 8th at 5:00 pm.
