The holiday season in Chicago brings many wonderful events and attractions.  One of the most unique is the Christkindlmarket, which has become a Chicago institution as it starts its 24th year at Daley Plaza in the Loop.

International Tradition and Local Charm

The Christkindlmarket Chicago is a free, outdoor holiday market and village that brings German and European tradition combined with local charm into the heart of Chicago’s Loop.  It is Chicago’s largest open-air Christmas festival and was inspired by the 16th-century holiday market in Nuremberg, Germany, one of the first holiday markets of its kind.

The Christkindlmarket features:

  • Hand-crafted ornaments, toys, and beautiful holiday gifts from vendors around the world
  • Traditional, authentic German foods, sweets, and drinks
  • Special events, activities, and performers

Each year, over one million locals and tourists alike visit the market for the unique shopping experience, delicious German fare, and holiday entertainment.  Don’t miss out!
