« Back to calendar « Previous Event | Next Event »
Saturday November 18, 2017 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
840 East 10th Street, Ferdinand Indiana  (map)

The heady aroma of authentic Bavarian specialty foods and an incredible array of Christmas wares, antiques, quality hand-crafted, and primitives await the public at Ferdinand’s Christkindlmarkt, Saturday and Sunday, November 18 and 19, 2017, held annually the 3rd full weekend in November.

In Germany, Christmas wares and gifts are sold in the festival-style setting of Christkindlmarkt. During the weeks of Advent, toy makers, basket weavers, wood carvers, candle makers and other artisans set up booths in front of the local church, where browsers make their selections. The custom began in the 14th century and continues today in the charming "Bavarian" village of Ferdinand, Indiana.

Park and ride!  Park in a city lot and enjoy free bus service for the weekend!
