Somerville, MA –Tickets are now on sale for what promises to be one of the largest holiday events in the greater Boston area:  the Holiday Arts & Eats Festival at Assembly Row in Somerville, to be held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, December 6th- -7th -8th, featuring 25 of New England’s best food trucks, a large holiday market including 60 Etsy artists — and more. And, VIP tickets are also available for exclusive early entry — and This food–truck-festival-meets-arts-marketplace is inspired by the traditional European Chriskindl markets, bringing handcrafted holiday shopping to the street wrapped with seasonal music, drinks, and neighbors.  Holiday Arts & Eats will be held under a large heated tent at Assembly Row filled with artists and vendors, a beer garden, and seating area to enjoy festive fare from the gourmet food trucks. 

“There are few large holiday events that combine gourmet food with unique art. Assembly Row is the perfect setting for an event that will provide three days of holiday fun and shopping – a glimpse of the fun to come when we open Assembly Row next year”, says Andrea Simpson, Director of Marketing and Tourism at Assembly Row. “Just as Somerville is a city of innovators and Assembly Row is the first neighborhood of its kind – this event is a marriage of innovation firsts. This is the first holiday food truck festival in the region. Adding an artistic component truly creates a modern Christkindl market —with several contemporary twists and a very local feel.”
