General Information:

Returning for its 7th season, Christmas Village in Baltimore will once again transform West Shore Park at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor into an authentic German Christmas market! Starting from Thanksgiving and running until Christmas Eve (November 28th – December 24th, 2019), a large variety of weekday and weekend events designed to please young and old await to be explored! Also, make sure that you don’t miss our Preview Weekend on November 23rd and 24th.  

Over 50 local and international vendors will offer their unique giftware. They’ll be located both inside our huge heated festival tent and outdoors in traditional wooden booths. Always a must-see: our famous German vendor Käthe Wohlfahrt, which features genuine German arts and crafts such as Schwibbogen, Pyramids, Glass Ornaments, Nutcrackers and Incent Smokers. 

Enjoy a large variety of German foods such as freshly grilled Bratwurst with a side of homemade Sauerkraut, Schnitzel with Potato Salad, Leberkäse (German meatloaf), Raclette cheese and of course our delicious Pretzels!   


Highlights in 2019: 

- Christmas Village will feature a new centerpiece in 2019: The Pyramid, a German Christmas Tower from the Ore Mountains, will welcome you to enjoy the biggest selection of Glühwein ever served at Christmas Village

- Meet the original Christkind from Nuremberg/Germany when she opens the market within our Grand Opening Ceremony on November 30th, 2019

- Join us for our magical Christmas Tree LightingCeremony at the Baltimore Inner Harbor Amphitheater on December 1st, 2019

- Grab your friends and swing by at our beloved Beer and Wine Tastings. Our weekly tastings are a flavorful taste journey through German beverages that you shouldn’t miss! 


As always, Christmas Village comes along with an extensive schedule of weekday and weekend events, such as daily live performers or our business lunch specials. Favored events like the Mascot Weekend and the German American Weekend will of course return. Make sure to check out our online event schedule (available at the end of October) on our website to plan your trip to the market!
