What type of event is this?
ChristmasFest is an opportunity for your whole family to enjoy Salem, experience Christmas tastes and sounds, and immerse yourself in German and Moravian Christmas traditions. Modeled after the ever-popular German Christmas Markets (Christkindlmärkte), the festival will feature music, arts & crafts, gifts, Tannenbäume (Christmas trees), food and drink, as well as fun and festivities for all ages, including activities for children and a chance to meet Weihnachtsmann (Santa)!
What is the Moravian Music Foundation?
Unique Musical Treasures: Nestled in the historic town of Salem, NC, is a modern archival repository of musical treasures written and collected by Moravians. Built upon a unique blend of ancient hymnody, traditional German hymn texts, and Classical music, Moravian Christmas music delivers a heartfelt message of hope and joy in the holiday season.
