Brooklyn’s answer to the Bank of America Winter Village in Bryant Park and the Union Square Holiday Market is coming in late November to a site next to the Brooklyn Museum.

WinterFest at the Brooklyn Museum, a 40,000-square-foot holiday extravaganza, is scheduled to officially open to the public on Nov. 23. It features an Angels Market with nearly 50 vendors that includes food, beverages, a performance stage and a Santa Land featuring Mr. and Mrs. Claus for photo opportunities, according to Time Out New York.

Among the other seasonal-themed attractions at WinterFest will be an Enchanted Tree Maze that explores holiday traditions from 20 different countries; a “Snowzilla slide,” a giant snow globe for visitors to walk through and more, Time Out New York said. For those who celebrate Hanukkah, there will be a Spectacular Menorah station offering menorah lightings, food and music.

An interactive exhibit called The Chocolate Dome Story will allow visitors to taste and learn about the sweet treat. Nearby, the Vinopolis Wine Tasting Experience will do the same for wine enthusiasts.

WinterFest at the Brooklyn Museum is free, although tickets may be necessary for certain events. For more information, visit winterfestbrooklnymuseum.com.
