      Discover the magic of an olde world Christmas market as New Ulm's Christkindlmarkt casts its spell under more visitors this year. The festive German marketplace and family faire will ring in the season featuring handcrafted works and performances by local artisans.

      Imagine selling your work at an indoor Marktplatz set up as a European village square complete with Christmas stalls and German streets. From the Edelweiss Schauplatz, charming carolers, strolling violins, Heinzelmännchen Gnomes and lucky Chimney Sweeps will entertain guests as they shop for unique and difficult to resist gifts.

      Warm yourself with a cup of mulled wine while you take in the wonderful view of the market’s beautifully illuminated 20 foot Christmas tree. Savor handmade pretzels, roasted nuts and grilled German sausages from the Weihnachts Café.

      Travel through the enchanting Black Forest to visit St. Nick’s reindeer and the Live Nativity. Kinderwelt will captivate youngsters with storytellers, art activities, a performance of The Elves and the Shoemaker and a hot cocoa bar.

      Experience this time-honoured tradition without having to travel any farther than the city of New Ulm, the most German city in America. Ride the Holly Trolley for a tour of the downtown, historically decorated with swags of fresh garland, and enjoy the annual Parade of Lights.

      At this time, the registration for jewelry artists and mitten makers is closed. We welcome and are still accepting registrations for all other arts and folk art crafts. Thank you for your consideration.

      This event is sponsored by Target Foundation, New Ulm Business and Retail Association, New Ulm Area Foundation and made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
