ASTORIA WINTER FESTIVAL
December 19, 20 & 21
Friday, 3 to 8 pm
Saturday and Sunday, 10 to 5
Astoria Winter Festival is a community celebration featuring up to forty vendors that make or grow their products. Prepare for a caroling competition, holiday cookie contest, and a kids workshop where they can make their own gift for family and friends!
The Bacon and Beer theme is back for our concession stand. The North Coast Chefs Syndicate returns with their bacon-themed treats and the Wet Dog Cafe is the featured brewery!
A Caroling Competition is a great way to get in the holiday spirit while raising funds for your favorite local charity! You can download the registration and rules HERE. The top three winners of the People’s Choice Giving Award also receive a donation on their behalf from Astoria Sunday Market to their chosen charity. Winners are chosen by what team wins the post “tips” or donations during the competition.
The Holiday Cookie Bake-Off features Anna Holen, daughter of Chris and Jennifer Holen — owners of Baked Alaska Restaurant — as a judge along with one of Santa’s Elves and a local cookie expert.

EMPTY STREETS TO FESTIVE MARKET!
Michael Mathers attended nearly every Astoria Sunday Market the first half of the 2011 season and countless hours photographing the Market from set-up to tear-down to create this wonderful time-lapsed movie from his still images of the Market. Michael is a professional photographer and created this movie as a personal project. Enjoy!
