Denver7 and the Christkindl Market welcome the holidays with a traditional European Market in the heart of downtown Denver.
For the 19th year, the German American Chamber of Commerce – Colorado Chapter hosts the Mercedes-Benz Denver Christkindl Market, open daily from Nov. 22 through Dec. 23, 2019 in Skyline Park on 16th Street Mall and Arapahoe Street in Downtown Denver, across from the Daniels & Fisher Clock Tower.
Under the lights of the city, this Market brings the most beloved elements of an authentic German holiday experience to Denver, including opportunities to snap a selfie with St. Nikolaus, Krampus and the Christkind herself. Guests can savor the season as they enjoy authentic Glühwein (mulled spiced wine), Bavarian-style Biers, European coffee, hot chocolate, or liqueur while wandering through the Market shopping for unique, finely crafted artisan gifts and holiday treats sold by local Coloradan, European and international merchants in charming wooden huts. Patrons are invited to cozy up inside the heated Festival Hall to enjoy live entertainment on the Mercedes-Benz Stage while snacking on Bavarian-style pretzels, fresh smoked salmon, Knödel, Goulasch or Nürnberger Sausages with their family and friends.
The heated Festival Hall is open to the public and is reminiscent of a German Bier Hall filled with long wooden table and bench seating. Patrons are invited to fill their steins with cold Bavarian style Biers, or perhaps a warm Glühwein in a collectible traditional stein or mug. The Mercedes-Benz Stage features a variety of daily entertainment including accordion players, polka music, Schuhplattler dancers and classical performances by the Denver Philharmonic, a partner of the Bavarian Philharmonic.
The stage will also host Denver7 Read to Lead Holiday Storytimes with Anne Trujillo and other Denver7 talent on Saturday, Dec. 14 and Saturday, Dec. 21 at 11:00 a.m.
