When the weather turns colder, the desire to go holiday shopping and listen to Christmas music grows like snow on the ground. Thankfully, Christkindlmarket in Des Moines will let you do both, and so much more. Visit Des Moines the first weekend of December to experience all of the fun.

This outdoor festival is a must-experience shopping and cultural event that draws inspiration from a beloved German custom. In addition, family-friendly festivities include live entertainment, German and European food vendors, Christmas-inspired drinks, children’s activities, and a unique shopping experience for presents and holiday décor. 

This festival follows tradition and is held outside, with the addition of a heated entertainment tent and numerous covered areas for dining and shopping. The Christkindlmarket is the perfect place to do some gift shopping for the holiday season before having dinner and a drink alongside the falling snow. 

This event is free to attend.
