Chicago, IL – The festive season bursts into life as the renowned Christkindlmarket opens its doors today in three spectacular locations: Daley Plaza, Gallagher Way in Wrigleyville, and Riveredge Park in Aurora. 

This enchanting German-style holiday market offers an extraordinary experience, combining traditional German, international, and local flavors, and an array of unique handmade gifts.

Celebrating its opening in 1996, the Chicago Christkindlmarket at Daley Plaza stands as the original and most authentic location, boasting over 55 international and local vendors, including 15 food stalls. Visitors can warm up in the cozy tents and even host private or company events amidst the holiday splendor.

For a family-centric adventure, the Aurora location at Riveredge Park is the perfect destination. As the sole suburban market in 2023, it offers over 50 vendors, a warming tent, ample parking, and exciting live entertainment suitable for all ages.

Wrigleyville’s Gallagher Way adds its unique charm to the trio, offering a delightful mix of vendors in its magical holiday village.

All three markets share the signature red and white striped wooden booths, creating a visually stunning and magical holiday atmosphere. However, each location has its own unique charm and character, making it a worthwhile experience to visit all three.

The Christkindlmarket remains an admission-free, safe outdoor experience for families, inviting visitors to immerse themselves in the magical holiday villages, explore global vendor products, and enjoy special events for a one-of-a-kind shopping and cultural experience.
