Natural Awakenings Milwaukee

Christkindlmarket Milwaukee Returns with an Array of Seasonal Delights

Christkindlmarket Milwaukee, a traditional German holiday market featuring food, drinks, artisan-crafted gifts and entertainment, opens November 15 and runs through December 24. The market begins at 11 a.m. daily and is held at the Entertainment Plaza outside the Fiserv Forum. Most of the market is outdoors, with vendors arranged on an outdoor plaza, and visitors can walk up to their windows to shop. The market includes some walk-in cabins with indoor vendors, a warming area and the Timber Tent, where visitors can sit and enjoy food and beverages such as Gl├╝hwein, an imported mulled wine.

The event is sponsored by German American Events, LLC, a subsidiary of the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Midwest. Since its beginnings in Chicago in 1996, the German-style outdoor market, featuring international and local vendors with unique offerings, has become so popular that it expanded to other locations in Illinois and Wisconsin. Christkindlmarket Milwaukee is wheelchair accessible. Leashed, socialized dogs are welcome in outdoor areas.

Admission: Free. Location: 1111 Vel R. Phillips Ave., Milwaukee. For more information, visit
