Christkindlmarkt Bethlehem

November 24, 2019 - December 24, 2019

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00am on Sunday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until December 22, 2019

Each Christmas season, towns, villages and cities throughout Germany host festive outdoor markets known as Christkindlmarkts, uniting the community in a celebration of the holiday season. While each Christkindlmarkt is unique, they all feature food and drink, holiday ornaments and plenty of handcrafted gifts.

It’s in this age-old tradition that Christkindlmarkt Bethlehem was established in downtown Bethlehem in 1993 by ArtsQuest. Started to complement the Christmas City’s existing celebration, the event has grown steadily and is now considered one of the premier holiday attractions in the Northeastern United States.

Recognized in 2007 as one of the top holiday markets in the world by Travel and Leisure Magazine, Christkindlmarkt Bethlehem showcases aisles of exquisite handmade works by the nation’s finest artisans, the heart-warming sounds of live Christmas music, delicious food and more. The event is also home to jolly, old St. Nicholas, who’s eager to greet children and hear their holiday wishes, and Germany’s Käthe Wohlfahrt, renowned for its authentic German ornaments, nutcrackers, smokers and collectibles. Christkindlmarkt’s outdoor courtyard is a festive area showcasing entertaining ice carving demonstrations and the beautiful, 26-foot-tall Christkindlmarkt tree.

Guests will also enjoy the GlassWorks area, where artists transform molten glass into beautiful holiday ornaments and works of art. Watch these talented artists hard at work and pick up a gorgeous, hand-blown piece for your home or tree.

MATPRA

Head to Southern Delaware later this month January 24th-26th for the 5th Annual Winter Delmarva Birding Weekend, which celebrates the waterfowl, seabirds, shorebirds, raptors — and seals! — that are on full display in the mid-Atlantic during the winter months.

Birding trips include a near-shore maritime boat cruise from Lewes, DE, to enjoy seals and pelagic and arctic migrants, eagle-watching trips, and jaunts in Delaware and Maryland through some of the most pristine public and private habitats on the East Coast. Get out and connect with some of the native and migratory birds and species that flock to Southern Delaware each winter! www.visitsoutherndelaware.com
