Christkindlesmarkt is a traditional German Christmas Market. Original markets date back to as far as the late Middle Ages and are a hotspot for German holiday culture. With the growth in business, we’ve chosen 2021 to host our first ever Christkindlesmarkt and we had a blast!
Choosing to incorporate as many traditional Chriskindlesmarkt practices as we could ended up being a great decision. Some of these practices included serving Gluhwein, having Polka bands play traditional Christmas songs, obtaining vendors with only handcrafted products, and providing a variety of German sweets for purchase.
Our market took place four consecutive Saturdays before Christmas and allowed the community to come together for a bit of shopping, drinking, socializing, and celebrating after a long year.
There is much more culture and history of Christkindlesmarkt to uncover. Let’s hope we debut even more traditions next year!
