Clarksville to Host Old Fashioned Christmas Market
The old fashioned Clarksville Christmas Market will take place on December 5th & 6th at the historic Apple Shed in Clarksville, Mo. Wander through over 60 vendors in the Apple Shed filled with an abundant assortment of holiday wares, vintage & antiques, wearable art, floral arrangements, repurposed furniture and accessories, direct sale vendors, hand crafted items, and so much more.
“We wanted this Christmas Market to be unique and different”, stated Joanna Brock, President of the Clarksville Chamber. “The old fashioned market will have live entertainment, activities for the kids and even an indoor fresh cut Christmas tree lot. How about a horse and carriage ride if you join us on Saturday?”
The Clarksville Christmas Market will have all the sights, sounds and smells of the Christmas Season. A Candy Cane Land will host games and activities for the kids and will feature a “Santa Cinema”. The young and young at heart alike will get to watch Christmas favorites on the big screen. A different Holiday movie will run every two hours. Live entertainment, a fashion show and how-to demonstrations will fill the main stage both days. Learn how to decorate a beautiful Christmas tree, make a fresh greenery wreath, prepare the perfect Holiday table scape, make a bow for that wreath or special package or learn how to decorate this season with vintage accessories. Demonstrations will take place both days on the main stage. A Holiday Fashion Show will be presented on Saturday at 2pm. The Fashion Show will feature vintage clothing and accessories from days gone past.
