Every two years, a Christmas Fair is held on and around the Menkemaborg Groningen estate house in Uithuizen, and this year it is scheduled for 11 December. The estate house will be all about Christmas, with an enchantingly illuminated estate house, Christmas carols and a Christmas market.
Around the estate house will be market stands with various items and various activities will be held about this year’s theme: 'The King and his 13 guests'. There will be a live painting depicting the story of the King and his 13 guests. The exhibitors on the market have been asked to appear in historic costume as part of the theme.
With 5000 visitors, the previous fair in 2009 was a resounding success.
