We've been going to Christkindlmarkt for years. It changed locations a few years ago, and I'm glad it did--it's nicer to have real bathrooms, and not have to climb up and down the massive hill in town. There are always so many interesting vendors to see, and many of them are reasonably priced. We've always been happy with the food... More

I wasn't impressed last year, but this year I visited twice. We had a coupon for $2 off when we went opening day. Found a groupon for 2 admissions for $9 for the Second visit. My friends and I had such a wonderful time, looking forward to next year already! Which, may require multiple visits. Be aware that some vendors... More

This was our 4th year going to the annual Christmas event and I have to say it needs to me overhauled. Since they moved locations from downtown to the Steel Stacks, they have relied on the "same old, same old". They need to turn it up a notch and add some new and refreshing things such as the entertainment. For... More

I've been wanting to go for a few years though I'm glad I waited for a Groupon offer this year as regular priced entry is a bit on the high side when you are basically paying to go shop. We found parking right away even if there was heavy traffic coming and going, and I'll admit it is a pleasant... More

Seriously, as a fellow artisan, I had high expectations of this show, disappointed we not only sat in traffic, fought to find where it exactly was and where to park but we spent LESS time walking around than it took to get there....and we are close by! There were a lot of jewelry vendors, more dog treat and dog "stuff"... More

The town of Bethlehem was so cute and quaint. As we walked Main Street it's started to flurry and it was just a wonderful Christmas feeling. There was a side street that had a little village with homemade products that were wonderful. Then I found one that had hot chocolate hot cider and then I saw at the bottom of... More

A lot nicer than when I went a few years ago. Glad most of it is inside. A lot of different vendors and more food selections than before. Its neat being at the Steel Stacks and is close to the casino and outlets. We went to the outlets first to go to the Peeps store and then the market. The... More

First of all it was a rainy day and the second tent has major leaking problems. There are not enough true Christmas displays like the namesake markets on Germany. It is very much another craft show with some Christmas stuff thrown in. Not sure where dog biscuits and frozen wine drinks fit the theme. It is a large craft show... More

My husband and I take an entire day to go to Christkindlmarkt each year. We enjoy looking at all the crafter's items and try to get unique gifts for family and friends. Although this event occurs over the course of a month during November-December, there are some crafters that are not there EVERY weekend, but most are there the entire... More

My Husband and I just went there last night. It is part of a tradition in our town/city every year. The location at the steel stacks is easy to get to and park. Most of the vendors are in huge heated tents and some who brave the cold outside selling their goods . Displays of exquisite Christmas items not usual... More
