Each year the Christkindlmarket brings the most beloved elements of the German holiday experience to the heart of Denver with opportunities to snap a selfie with St. Nikolaus, Krampus and the Christkind herself.

The Christkindlmarket will have independent local and international merchants selling gifts and food in wooden huts. The market will have merchants from around the world including Old German Christmas, Wise Elk Ukrainian toys and food vendors.

Guests to the market can savor the season while enjoying authentic Glühwein (mulled spiced wine), Bavarian-style Biers, European coffee or hot chocolate while shopping for unique artisan gifts and holiday treats sold by local Coloradoan, European and international merchants.

Food options at the festival include Bavarian-style pretzels, fresh smoked salmon, Knödel, Goulasch or Nürnberger Sausages.
