Christmas Village Returns to Baltimore

Christmas Village Returns to Baltimore

Christmas Village in Baltimore is ready to transform West Shore Park (501 Light Street) into a traditional indoor and outdoor German Christmas Market. For the new holiday season, this annual Baltimore tradition will open early with a brand-new preview weekend on Saturday, November 17 and Sunday, November 18, 2018. Christmas Village will then open regular hours for the season starting on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22nd through Christmas Eve, Monday, December 24th.

Christmas Village is located in West Shore Park, between the Maryland Science Center and the PANDORA Ice Rink. Follow the smell of gingerbread and freshly charcoal-grilled brats to the authentic wooden huts and to the grand heated tent which features a full menu of European food, sweets, and drinks. Some specials this year include mouthwatering new addition of Raclette Cheese, plus German Schnitzel, Belgian Fries, Hofbräu Beer, and warm mulled wine. Food and drinks can be enjoyed in one of the enlarged seating areas within the heated tent or the outdoor beer garden - the Alm. Look forward to a huge food variety this year, with something for everyone!

For shopping, bring your gift lists and visit more than 50 local and international merchants offering high-quality crafted gifts. Famous German vendor Käthe Wohlfahrt will return with thousands of ornaments, pyramids and limited-edition holiday decorations. Other vendors will have something for everyone on Santa's wish list, including toys, apparel, jewelry, decorations, home decor, artwork and much more.

Christmas Village in Baltimore's outdoor area is always free of admission. Admission for the heated festival tent is free on the preview and the opening weekend. For Baltimore's Dollar or Less Days, on December 8 and 9, visitors will enjoy $1 admission. For the remaining weekends, admission to the festival tent is five dollars for adults 18 and over, while kids under 18 can enter for free.
