Hometown Holidays for the whole family Saturday Dec 14, 12noon to 4pm

Enjoy hometown holidays with activities for kids and treats for the entire family in our festively decorated stained-glass Holidays at Beans in the Belfrylit room, authentic German holiday music and treats as served at European Christmas markets and unique gifts and stocking stuffers.

 Our choir loft will house a mystery gift shop where kids can pick out gift items for friends and family for just a few dollars out of the view of parents down below.  Elves will assist kids with their choices and help with gift wrapping and gift tags. I can grind too

 In the main room organ grinder Lola will turn the handle of her authentic German street organ that her mother used to play in her hometown of Baden-BadenGermany.  Kids can help crank the handle and watch the mysterious steel rolls crank out German holiday tunes “merry-go-round” style for singalong. 

 At our farm table Karlen, who is originally from Norway, will help kids decorate their own little gingerbread houses with royal icing and colorful candy to display and take home.

Hometown holidys, let's build a gingerbread house In the kitchen, we’ll have chestnuts roasting for visitors to sample and purchase.  Hanna will fry German potato pancakes as are served at Christmas markets in the old country and our baristas will prepare hot chocolate, hot spiced cider, delicious teas, espresso drinks and of course Gluehwein, sweet hot spiced holiday wine.  Our shelves are stocked with German Lebkuchen, Pfeffernuesse, Stollen, chocolate santas, Italian cakes, and other feel-good confections. 

 While in Brunswick, think of shopping local!  Our gift shop is well stocked with bags of gourmet coffee, tea in gift boxes, baking accessories for kids such a cookie cutters, sprinkles, aprons, mixing tools, French presses, tea pots, china gift sets, endearing  plush elf and reindeer puppets, Santa hats and collars for your pets and so much more.  Don’t know what to get?  Pick up a Gift Certificate that will keep on giving.  

 Why not stay for dinner and an evening performance of authentic Celtic music by the  Rum and Kidney Men featuring Brunswick’s Scott Carr on bagpipes. Gillian will hopefully delight us with her Irish dancing.  There will be plenty of Guinness on hand and some Irish stew to keep body and soul together.
