Opening Weekend at Christmas Village

December 9, 2017 @ 11:00 am - December 10, 2017 @ 7:00 pm


After a successful season at its temporary location at City Hall in 2016, Christmas Village is happy to announce that it will make the move back to the newly renovated LOVE Park in 2017. Returning for its 10th anniversary season, Christmas Village in Philadelphia will transform Love Park into an authentic German Christmas market. As in past years, the event will be open from Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, November 23th) through Christmas Eve (Sunday, December 24th) with a Preview Weekend on November 18th and 19th.


Come and celebrate our Opening Weekend during Christmas Village’s 10 year anniversary on November 25th and 26th. We kick off the weekend with the official Christmas tree lighting of the city of Philadelphia on Saturday, November 25th. The 40 foot live Christmas tree will be located in the center of Christmas Village. Our official opening ceremony is set for Sunday, November 26th. Here you can meet the original Christkind from Nuremberg, after she officially opens the market by reciting her traditional prologue. Bring your friends and family to take photos with her as she does her traditional walk through the market. In Germany, she is the person who brings Christmas gifts to the kids, and she won’t be coming to Philadelphia empty handed!


Over 80 local and international vendors will await the visitors in their traditional wooden booths, offering Holiday gifts, ornaments, jewelry and high-quality arts and crafts. Everybody is sure to find the perfect gifts!

Come and experience Philadelphia’s Best Family Event, voted by the Philly Happening List, with your loved ones. To get more information about our vendors and programming, visit our website or get connected on our social media channels.


Admission is free so come by and enjoy the festive traditional holiday atmosphere all month long!
