Home Newsroom 329. 12 Days of ChristKindlFest Countdown DAY ONE: Enter The More the Merrier Contest

We’re so excited about ChristKindlFest coming up next week that we decided to host a 12 Days of ChristKindlFest COUNTDOWN!  Between now and December 7th, we’ll be sharing 12 reasons you don’t want to miss this year’s 4-day fest, which opens on Thursday, December 4th, in downtown Barrington.  We’re kicking things off with – our favorite – A CONTEST!  So, without further ado, here’s reason #1 to join the fun.

1.) The More the Merrier ChristKindlFest Contest

“The MORE the MERRIER” is one of the MOTTOS for the second annual ChristKindlFest winter market and music festival, coming up in downtown Barrington from December 4th through the 7th.


One of the coolest things about ChristKindlFest is that people come from far and wide to enjoy the fest and stay for all the fun downtown Barrington has to offer. Local merchants and restaurants will be rolling out the red carpet for all visitors to Barrington during the 4-day fest. To celebrate the community’s holiday spirit, the ChristKindlFest committee has lined up THREE awesome prizes highlighting some of the fun experiences found only in Barrington.  All who enter have a chance to win the first ever “More the Merrier” ChristKindlFest Contest.


To enter, all you have to do is help spread the word about Barrington’s ChristKindlfest. Share the fest on social media, in your circles or at your Thanksgiving dinner table.
