What is special about an event organised under the umbrella of the “Tradition and Market Franchise”? 

 Encouraged by the success of the Christmas Village in Erkelenz, which has already become a tradition, eagerly awaited by all the inhabitants of this small German town, we have decided to continue this success story and offer all those interested, the opportunity to organise events in as many towns and cities as possible throughout Europe. 

 To this end, we have prepared a Christmas market with modular, uniform stands made of solid wood, very easy and quick to assemble and disassemble – innovative in this respect. Thanks to their versatility and the different decoration possibilities, the modular stands can be used for almost all types of events, whether regional or national, such as winter holidays, Easter holidays, marzipan festivals, children’s days, summer markets or local festive events such as district festivals, harvest festivals or any type of occasion representative of the region in question. Instead of fir, wax and artificial snow, alternatively reeds, corn stalks, oversized autumn leaves or giant pumpkins can appear to decoratively mark the various events, depending on the season or specific festival in one region or another. In terms of the basic concept, the organisers of each event can find traders of handicrafts, as well as various local, regional and even national commercial and gastronomic offers, with the fair acting as a point of attraction and contact that attracts both locals and visitors from near and afar and like this can become a long-term tradition.  

What does the Christmas market look like under the umbrella of the “Tradition and Market Franchise”?  

 In our opinion, the Christmas market is particularly suitable for cities in historic areas or in central squares of cities and districts. Structurally, the leisure complex can be built from completely modular systems made of solid wood, comprising between 35 and up to 200 stands arranged individually or in a group. In this way, the fair can be condensed into a self-contained village, offering the possibility of complete coverage and ensuring a pleasant stay even in bad weather.  

 Thus, the “village” can be completely covered with water- and UV-resistant tarpaulins, which can be attached to the sides of the wooden stands on the integrated “window modules”. These elements primarily serve functional design purposes and allow for better visibility, the admission of natural daylight and a distinctive appearance of the windows.  

 For the comfort of visitors and exhibitors, the Christmas market has its own heating system with electrically operated radiant heaters. The flooring is covered with fireproof treated wood chips, both for safety reasons to comply with fire regulations and for comfort and to protect feet from the cold.  

 The main attraction will be the mulled wine and drinks stall in the centre of the covered area, which will form the ‘social hub’ of the village – a place where families and groups of friends can relax with a steaming cup of tea or mulled wine, or feast on the culinary delights of the food stalls to the side of the Central Marquee. 

 For an event to be a success for organisers and visitors, it should last 4-7 weeks and cover at least 5 weekends, with the market open daily from 11am to 11pm. Below we have also compiled a calendar with suggestions for the most suitable times for organising events throughout the year: 

  • Organization of the Christmas Market 15 November – 10 January
  • Organization of the Marțișor Days 29 February – 10 March ???
  • Summer market organization 1 June – 28 August
  • Organization of the harvest days 15 September – 25 September
  • Organization of the Oktoberfest October 1 – October 20
  • Organisation of the town days and district festivals
The construction of the Christmas Village with at least 35 and up to 50 stall-like booths takes between 8 and 10 days, the dismantling between 2 and 4 days, depending on the conditions of the respective location.
