Christkindl Market (German Christmas Market)

The Christkindl Market is a German tradition that dates back to the middle ages when farmers, tradesmen and artisans would meet around their churches with song, food and small gifts. The first open winter market was held in 1310 in Munich, Germany.

Our Christkindl Market will feature local vendors, festive entertainment from local bands, chiors and dance groups, and authentic German food and drinks. This event is tailored for all ages, including a free craft area and a visit from Santa himself for our younger visitors!
