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.

What makes handcrafted so special?

With handcrafted items, more emphasis is placed on individually manufacturing products. Here creativity knows no bounds and because handcrafted is not designed for mass market, it is made for those who appreciate it.
