What is a Christkindlmarkt?

Known by many names, the traditional German Christmas market is an Outdoors street festival associated with the celebration of Christmas during the four weeks of Advent. These markets originated in Germany in the 1300s and are now held in many countries. Pennsylvania, with our influence of German settlers, is home to several successful markets including the Mifflinburg Christkindl Market which will celebrate 31 years in 2019.


The Lower Paxton Christkindlmarkt will bring craft vendors, food, a living nativity, live music and dance and traditional German culture to the streets of the village of Linglestown, Harrisburg. This Outdoors Christmas festival will be a great place for Christmas gifts, entertainment, and will showcase businesses of Lower Paxton along with 70 invited hand-crafted vendors.
