Christmas Village in Philadelphia
Philadelphia will once again transform into a European wonderland for the annual Christmas Village, this year being held at iconic LOVE Park.
Running from Thanksgiving through Christmas Eve, Christmas Village in Philadelphia is a daily outdoor holiday market selling all sorts of gift-able items right in the heart of Center City.
Shoppers can expect more than 80 vendors set up in dozens of wooden booths and two large tents, all offering a wide range of international holiday gifts, ornaments, jewelry, handmade toys, high-quality arts and crafts, wintry apparel, and edible and drinkable treats, while entertainment keeps things festive.
The Christmas Village in Philadelphia is a shopper’s paradise.
Modeled after traditional European open-air Christmas markets, this shopper’s paradise spreads out across the park, offering gifts and items of all sorts alongside festive treats like warm waffles, gingerbread and mulled wine.
In addition to serving as an outdoor shopping center, the Christmas Village in Philadelphia frequently offers street-side performances and special events each day and festive music to create an inviting holiday setting.
Christmas Village is also just steps away from several other holiday attractions, including the Rothman Ice Rink at Dilworth Park and America’s Garden Capital Maze.
Each year, the original Christkind from Nuremberg, Germany opens the Christmas Village in Philadelphia with her world famous prologue.
The Made in Philadelphia Holiday Market also makes a return to Dilworth Park (across from Christmas Village). The all-local market features artisans, designers, crafters and confectionaries that hail from the Philadelphia area. Together, the joint venues create a can’t-miss, one-stop shopping spot.
Visitors should also check out the Christmas Village’s holiday-themed carousel featuring 20 wood carved horses, holiday wreaths and lights.
