Ann Arbor’s second year KindleFest celebrations canceled in 2021

ANN ARBOR, me. – Christmas shoppers need to find a new Christmas market to visit this year.

The board of directors of the Kerrytown District Association announced the cancellation of the 2021 KindleFest celebration, Ann Arbor’s annual outdoor holiday night market.

“After much deliberation, the Kerrytown County Board decided to cancel the Kindle Festival this year,” the board said on social media.

“We are a purely voluntary neighborhood district with all current executives on the board consisting of local business owners and executives. The current situation for all local business owners does not leave us with enough resources to organize and coordinate everything that is required for a successful Kindlefest event. “

This week’s announcement marks the second year in a row that the Christmas market has been canceled since it started in 2009. In 2020, KindleFest was canceled due to health concerns related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.


The event regularly brings artisans and hundreds of visitors to the Ann Arbor Farmers Market for a traditional German-inspired outdoor Christmas market on the first Friday in December.

In its statement, the Kerrytown board of directors apologized for disappointing sellers and supporters of the traditional event.

The KindleFest is expected to return in 2022, announced the association’s board.
