Excelsior Christkindlsmarkt Nov. 24, 25, 26 Thanksgiving Weekend Open-Air Christmas Market

Excelsior, MN – The 12th annual Excelsior Christkindlsmarkt will take place during the Thanksgiving weekend. This three-day event draws people from all over the Midwest and is modeled after the traditional German, open-air Christmas markets. The festival features German holiday foods, decor, gifts, and entertainment for the entire family and is festively decorated for Christmas. It is free and open to the public.

The event will take place on East Drive adjacent to the Excelsior Brewing in Downtown Excelsior on Friday, Nov. 24th (10am-7pm), Saturday, Nov.25th (10am-7pm) and Sunday, Nov 26th (11am-4pm).

The event consistently falls on Small Business Saturday and supports a variety of small businesses as part of the event and in the town of Excelsior. A new addition this year is Belinda Jensen, Bel the Weather Girl, reading her children’s’ books, meeting and greeting families, doing experiments and answering questions on Friday and Saturday morning. Also new is “Timber Bay” as a festival partner managing the Christmas tree sales lot located at the entrance.

Christkindlsmarkt officially starts at 10 AM on Friday, November 24th when Father Christmas and the Christkind Angel lead the parade down Water Street to the festival entrance. Live Reindeer join the festival Friday and Saturday. Saturday at 5pm is the Children’s Lighted Lantern Parade, a sight to behold on Water Street with over 500 children with glowing lights led by Father Christmas, reindeer, and the Christkind.

The immensely popular market will feature: 
  • Modern, vintage and traditional German artisan gifts
  • Local choirs, carolers, and musicians
  • An array of delicious holiday and German foods
  • Father Christmas aboard the NorthPole Trolley (running throughout the event)
  • KinderWorld (children’s heated center for music, storytelling, balloon artist, and face-painting
  • The Frozen Princesses in Kinderworld and on the NorthPole Trolley
