Enjoy an immersive holiday event based on a traditional European-style Christmas Market, where you can experience the sights, sounds and smells of the season. Stroll through the forest and our one million lights, while sipping a warm, spicy gluhwein. Feast on a variety of international dining options from pizza to fondue. Explore our Market vendors and find the perfect Christmas gift. Enjoy music from choirs and cozy up to a wood-burning fire pit. Those more adventurous will enjoy ice skating or snowless tubing, while the rest of the crew watches from the comfort of our fully-covered, heated tents. Our event is designed for friends and family to linger, enjoy time together and experience the traditions that make this time of year so special.
