Christkindlmarkt (Christmas Market)
Sponsored by Zion Church and The Baltimore Kickers, Christkindlmarkt brings a German food, drink, and gifts to Baltimore.
Shoppers can feast on authentic German foods and stock their pantries with imported holiday goodies including Stollen, Lebkuchen, Marzipan, and Advent calendars. Local craftspeople display their handmade snowflakes, Santas, jewelry, and floral arrangements along with commercial importers of smokers and steins. A model train garden is also part of the event. People can begin their holiday shopping, relax with a glass of Glühwein, and converse with a friend in a festive setting. Door prizes are awarded and guided tours of Zion Church are available. 1,724 people attended the market in 2010.
