The German-American Heritage Center is bringing a taste of the holidays to downtown Davenport this weekend.

On Saturday, the museum will open its highly beloved Christmas gift shop with a special pop-up from the Eickhoffs, a vendor typically featured at the annual Christkindlmarkt.

German-made goodies and handcrafted holiday decorations will be available for purchase in the museum’s lobby during operating hours.

More pop-up vendors are expected to make an appearance at the museum throughout the holiday season.

“The German-American Christkindlmarkt Craft Fair will not be held in 2021 in its normal form, but look for our pop-ups in the lobby of the German-American Heritage Center in November and December,” a news release says.
