About Us

Since 1996, German American Events, LLC, a subsidiary of the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Midwest, has hosted the Christkindlmarket Chicago as a free event, featuring international and local vendors with unique offerings for all ages. The German-style outdoor market has become so popular that it expanded to other locations in Illinois and Wisconsin. The unique shopping experience, diverse holiday entertainment and original food and beverages like the imported mulled wine, called Glühwein, make the Christkindlmarket a preferred and popular destination. Admission is always FREE!
