Christkindlmarkt Bethlehem returns for its 28th year with a reimagined outdoor format featuring 60 artisans and vendors every weekend, delicious food, St. Nicholas, and the return of popular German ornament manufacturer Käthe Wohlfahrt. Named one of the top holiday markets in the world by Travel + Leisure and one of the top holiday markets in North America by USA TODAY’s 10Best Readers’ Choice competition, Christkindlmarkt is known for its unique holiday shopping experience featuring thousands of unique handmade gifts.
This year, there will be no large tents on SteelStacks’ PNC Plaza, but rather a spacious, new layout with artisans and artists’ huts spread across the SteelStacks campus. When the market opens in autumn, it will offer a fall festival flair, while November’s arrival will usher in a variety of holiday programming as it takes on the feel of an outdoor German market.
