It's the annual Weihnachtsmarkt at Olde Meck (What? You don't know what that IS?)

The Weihnachtsmarkt is a marketplace, and it'll be open Dec. 4-6 at Olde Mecklenburg Brewery’s 8.5-acre spread at 4150 Yancey Road.

Vendors of gifts, crafts and baked goods will set up in what's usually the OMB Biergarten, and you can drink your beer (or Gluhwein, "glow wine": think mulled red) while you shop. The market will open at 4 p.m. Dec. 4, and the year's Yule Bock and tree lighting are slated for 5 p.m. Hours will be 4-9 p.m. Dec. 5 and 2-10 p.m. Dec. 6.
