Riggs Christmas Market

Looks like this event has already taken place.


1901 S. High Cross Road, Urbana, IL 61802

This German style Christmas Market is hosted outdoors in the Riggs' beergarden. Join us for German market food like brats, potato pancakes, crepes, candied almonds, and a cup of hot mulled wine or hot cocoa.

We're also bringing back many of our favorite vendors, and some new ones, so you can get your Christmas shopping done at the same time. A new addition this year is Jason Mack's giant glass Christmas tree. He'll be building it live during the market from recycled glass bottles.There is no fee to get in - just come and be merry. No outside beverages allowed.
