The 23rd annual creative exhibition will take place Saturday, Nov. 17, and Sunday, Nov. 18, at Ramstein-Miesenbach “Congress Center – CCR” (former “Haus des Buergers.”)

“Like in recent years, we again are able to present a wide range of creativity”, said organizer Marita Altherr. “A total of 75 hobby artists and crafters will show off their creative works”.

Visitors will have the chance to admire and buy items made using different techniques. Crafters will work on their stands and show visitors how they create their products and what techniques they are using. For example there is Mrs Vasco, who creates light objects made of vent pipes, and another one makes metal objects with horseshoe nails. Artists will show off a miniature fairy tale world made of felt and others will present painting in all ranges. A variety of soap creations , floristic items, ceramics for home and garden, glass, nativity scenes and many more. A glassblower will work different glass objects at his stand and a local handicraft shop will present ideas and also allow visitors to work their own objects. Hungry and thirsty visitors can take breaks at the cafeteria and taste fresh cinnamon waffles and a large variety of homemade cakes.

Like in previous years, there will be a raffle. All proceeds will go to the Ramstein-Miesenbach community Hospice Aid.

Opening hours are 1 to 6 p.m Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.on Sunday.

Admission is free.
