DESCRIPTION: After celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2017, Christmas Village is happy to announce, that it will once again set up in the newly renovated LOVE Park to put Center City in the mood for the winter holidays.
Returning for its 11th season already, Christmas Village in Philadelphia will transform Love Park into an authentic German Christmas market. The event will open Thanksgiving Day with a Preview Weekend on November 17 & 18, 2018.
Over 80 local and international vendors will await the visitors in their traditional wooden booths, offering Holiday gifts, ornaments, jewelry, high-quality arts and crafts. Here, everybody is sure to find unique gifts for their beloved ones that can’t be found in a shopping mall!
Come and enjoy European foods, sweets and drinks, such as Bratwurst, Schnitzel and Lebkuchen (gingerbread) or our special hot Gluhwein (mulled wine). Watch daily live performances by local bands, dance groups and artists on the Christmas Village stage and experience one of our themed weekends or special weekday events, such as Wine Tastings or St. Nikolaus Day.
Don’t miss the festive Käthe Wohlfahrt tent features popular Christmas gifts from Germany, including glass ornaments, music boxes, nutcrackers, schwibbogen and incense smokers.
