Inspiration & Upcoming Events

Christkindl Market - Thank you for Joining Us!

Every Christmas, since medieval times, towns and cities across Germany come alive with the sights, sounds and smells of Christmas. Kitchener City Hall is home to Canada's original Christkindl Market - since 1997. We have once again been awarded "Top 100 Festivals & Events in Ontario." This year you'll notice more decorated outdoor huts and eating stands along King Street where you can enjoy Gluhwein, sweet and savoury foods to eat now, take home or wrap up for gift giving.
