Adventmärkte in Grödig
Christmas Market in St. Leonhard
Since 1973, the St. Leonhard Advent Market has been offering exquisite handicrafts from Austria, Bavaria, and South Tyrol. In addition, there are tasteful gifts made by numerous school and women's associations, as well as by people with disabilities. Visitors can find candles and wax products, woodcarvings (especially Nativity figures), Christmas decorations made of glass and straw, or ceramic items. Additionally, there are incense and cookbooks from various regions of Austria. With a musically arranged program, this market has everything that an Advent market needs.
The net proceeds from the St. Leonhard Advent Market go to the Lebenshilfe, an organization supporting people with disabilities. This amounts to over 90,000 euros annually. With these funds, various residential homes and workshops for people with disabilities throughout the state of Salzburg have been co-financed. In total, the Advent Market St. Leonhard has contributed three million euros to the Lebenshilfe.
