It's the perfect place for grown-ups and the little ones to get in the spirit of Christmas!
Experience the old-world charm of the holidays at the American German Club's Christkindlmarkt, and create lasting memories while beginning new traditions with family and friends.
Our seating areas provide visitors with a place to relax, enjoy the ambiance, and of course, all our delightful food and drinks. German delicacies such as bratwurst, schnitzel, and more along with sweet holiday indulgences including traditional stollen, strudel, cookies, and more will satisfy all tastes. The not to be missed Glühwein (hot spice-mulled wine) and imported beers, wines and schnapps will be available for the grown-ups. We've got kids' holiday crafts activities and roaming storybook characters for all to enjoy! The Christkindlmarkt hosts live entertainment throughout each day, highlighting young community performers such as school choirs and jazz bands, folk dancers, and more.
Our vendors will help you check off your holiday shopping lists with their unique wares including Christmas ornaments and other holiday-related items. After dusk, families are invited to participate in a lantern parade during which they are led through the market by Santa and the Christkind, while singing classic German and American holiday songs. The highlight of the event will be the Tree Lighting by Santa at around 6:30 pm.
There will be free kids activities and rides included with admission, plus a few special activities at a nominal cost. Kids will also have plenty of photo ops with Santa, the Christkind, and other favorite storybook characters.
