    Philadelphia's favorite holiday tradition is back this year and better than ever! Celebrating its 10th anniversary season (can you believe it has been that long?), Christmas Village makes its triumphant and highly-anticipated return to the brand-new LOVE Park for six weeks this season!

     

    Modeled after traditional German holiday markets, LOVE Park will once again be transformed into a multicultural Christmas mecca starting on Thanksgiving Day, November 23rd (following the parade) and runs until Christmas Eve, Sunday, December 24th.

    Enjoy holiday sights and sounds with thousands of twinkling lights, the LOVE Park Christmas Tree, live music, children’s activities and photos with Santa Claus at the village. Christmas Village has grown in it's 10 years to a reported 750,000 visitors just last year alone. 

     

    Admission is free, with food, drink and shopping pay as you go.

    Christmas Village in Philadelphia
    German American Marketing, Inc.
    November 18th, 2017 - December 24th, 2017

    Christmas Village is made up of 70 booths and a big vendor tent, much like those found in traditional Christmas Villages in Germany. Within this village, you'll find a wide variety of seasonal goods that you won't find anywhere else. Comprised of over 80 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 just a snack on the go.

     

    If all the shopping and holiday wonder wasn't enough, Christmas Villiage will also be offering guests tasting tours with Chaddsford Winery, Ho Ho Happy Hours on Wednesday evenings and themed events throughout the week, including Village traditions like German American Weekend and Make-A-Wish Weekend. Visitors on the weekend of December 2nd will get to celebrate Christmas Village's birthday with a huge cake, the unveiling of their new mascot Phil, and more.

     

    The official opening ceremony will be held on Sunday, November 26th. Bring the whole family together for a chance to meet Christkind from Nuremberg, the traditional symbol of the Christmas Market, as she reads from her holiday prolouge and gives gifts to children.
