Trip Report Christkindl Market in Mifflinburg, PA

Jump to last reply

The Christkindl Market in Mifflinburg (located in central PA) is billed as the Oldest Authentic German Outdoor Christmas Market in the United States, celebrating their 24th year this year. My husband and I decided to visit the market last evening, and had a pleasant time... of course the weather was in our favor - a crisp, perfect winter evening.

The festival runs Thursday through Saturday, and we went for the Market Opening with the arrival of St. Nicholas through the Market on his Horse accompanied by the local school's Renaissance band. There were over 50 craft vendors selling their wares, many of them German oriented, and lots of German food options from over 40 food vendors.

For the children there is a Kinder World, Marionette shows, Hilby, the Skinny German Juggle Boy, the story of Firliputzli, a Christkindl Treasure Hunt, Elf school, Prune People, Dample Dei, a Christkindl Cinema, an outdoor Nativity scene, and many other activities.

For the adults they have Glühwein and German beer... woo hoo!

The Market is set in the historic district of Mifflinburg, and you can visit several of the buildings that have been restored. Overall, it was a very enjoyable time, and I'm sorry that we waited 24 years to visit this wonderful Christmas Market. (Free admission - donations accepted).

Happy Holidays!
