Lower Paxton Christkindlmarkt

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 influx of German settlers, is home to several successful markets.

About Lower Paxton Christkindlmarkt

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


Based on previous events managed by  the event committee, including the 2015 Linglestown 250th Celebration, we expect over 2,000 people to attend this year's event.
