19th Annual Christkindl Market

19th Annual Christkindl Market


This year marks the 19th Annual Christkindl Market, Kitchener’s very own Festival of German Christmas. The 4-day event runs from December 3 -6 in downtown Kitchener (visit www.christkindl.ca for hours).

This is a great event for the entire family with entertainment, vendors, history & folklore, and much more! Our team stopped by to speak with Monica Reid about this year’s event. Take a look!


“Christkindl Market was brought to Kitchener’s City Hall by founder Tony Bergmeier. It was designed to breathe life into the core of downtown Kitchener. Today, over 35,000 visitors from across North America come to experience our award-winning festival.” -christkindl.ca
