Philadelphia's favorite holiday tradition is back this year and better than ever! Back for its 15th season, Christmas Village returns to LOVE Park for six weeks!
Modeled after traditional German holiday markets, Christmas Village will once again transform LOVE Park into a multicultural Christmas mecca starting on Thanksgiving Day, November 24 until Christmas Eve, Saturday, December 24, with a preview weekend on November 19-November 20.
Enjoy holiday sights and sounds with thousands of twinkling lights, the LOVE Park Christmas Tree, delicious food and much more.
Admission is free, with food, drink and shopping pay-as you-go.
Christmas Village is made up of 70 booths as well as a big vendor tent, much like those found in traditional Christmas Villages in Germany. Within the village, you'll find a wide variety of seasonal goods that you won't find anywhere else. In partnership with the Made in Philadelphia holiday market, the market will be comprised of over 110 international and local vendors - there will be no shortage of places for you to find that perfect gift, the best glass of mulled wine, or a snack to eat while browsing. This year, Christmas Village is bringing back favorites like the Ferris Wheel presented by T-Mobile and Kids Train presented by SEPTA, as well as expanded outdoor seating and beer garden.
If all the shopping and holiday wonder wasn't enough, Christmas Village will also be offering guests tasting tours with Chaddsford Winery and Boardroom Spirits, themed events throughout the week, beer flights from the breweries Techne and Mainstay Independent, live music and more!*
