About Christkindlmarket (website)
The Christkindlmarket, an authentic German-style outdoor holiday market, will return to the plaza at Fiserv Forum from Friday, Nov. 15 through Tuesday, Dec. 24. This marks the second consecutive year the market has been held in Milwaukee’s Deer District after debuting in Wisconsin for the first time in 2018.
During the Christkindlmarket, the plaza at Fiserv Forum will transform into an idyllic German marketplace for the 40-day holiday celebration, featuring an increase in vendors from last year’s market. Marketgoers can enjoy the holiday season with shopping, delicious international and local delicacies, hot spiced wine (Glühwein), family fun and more.
Last year, more than 450,000 visitors were able to create holiday memories throughout the Christkindlmarket in Milwaukee.
