For Bishop Hill’s Julmarknad, see our tomten, Swedish Christmas elves, roam through the town, looking through windows, and peeking around corners in their red and grey outfits. Guests will also enjoy the Julbock, the Christmas Goat. This trickster from Scandinavian nations entertains young and old with its antics.
Julmarknad (Christmas Market) is November 26, 27, 28, and December 4 and 5. For more information about Julmarknad activities, please call 309-927-3899 or visit Julmarknad events are sponsored, in part, by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency, a state agency.
