It may seem early to think about the holidays, but the Barrington Village Association and Barrington Breakfast Rotary Club are already planning its ChristKindl Fest and has already obtained the village’s approval for this year’s festival.
ChristKindl Fest is scheduled for the weekend of December 6 to 8, coinciding with Barrington Traditions on Dec. 7.
The village of Barrington waived fees, including fees for tents, food application fee for local vendors and sound amplification permit, as an in-kind contribution. The contribution is up to $7,500 for a multi-day event under Barrington’s special event policy.
Twenty wooden structures will be placed in the Harris Bank parking lot for retail and food vendors, according to village reports. There will also be a large entertainment tent, a tent to cover portable toilets and a VIP tent for volunteers and sponsors.
A carnival train and 36 foot carousel ride is part of the fest along with a reindeer area.
