Ferdinand Christkindlmarkt Features Free Shuttle Service

The Ferdinand Tourism Commission along with the Dubois County Visitors Center welcomes you to the Ferdinand Christkindlmarkt to be held November 17 & 18, 2018 with opening ceremonies on the Monastery Immaculate Conception’s west hillside lawn on November 16th!  In an effort to assist and orchestrate dependable and timely shuttle service, a shuttle hub system has been developed for the weekend.

The Forest Park High School Gyms Markt Sites will serve as the HUB LOCATION for the free shuttle service provided both days, while tour guides will be aboard most of the shuttles to answer any questions you might have and to share interesting tidbits of local legend.  See Christkindlmarkt Routes.
