Welcome to Christmas City

A little town called Bethlehem was named on December 24, 1741 and is known as the Christmas City. What better place to spend the holiday season?

Step into Bethlehem’s past at the Moravian Museum, where guides in traditional costumes will enlighten and entertain you. You can forget the malls this holiday season and treat yourself to an old fashioned shopping experience on Main Street in Bethlehem.

Crafters, carols and ethnic delicacies can be found at Christkindlmarkt, the largest holiday market on the east coast. You’ll also find Christmas City Village, an open-air Christmas market nestled in the heart of the Historic Shopping District during the holidays. Enjoy a moving musical performance by the Bach Choir of Bethlehem, America’s oldest Bach choir.
