German Christmas sails into Baltimore! West Shore Park at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor will once again transform into a European Wonderland for the annual Christmas Village. Starting from Thanksgiving and running until Christmas Eve (November 24th – December 24th 2016), a large variety of weekday and weekend events designed to please young and old await to be explored!

Over 50 international vendors – located both inside a huge heated festival tent and outdoors in traditional wooden booths – will offer their unique giftware!

New in 2016: Make sure to stop by at Santa’s Place to get the pictures for your Holiday Cards while you are out and about. Bring the little ones to meet him, tell him their wishes and secure themselves a spot on the nice list! Santa will be waiting at his indoor place every day from November 24th through December 24th.

As always, Christmas Village comes along with an extensive schedule of events for you to attend: weekly Wine Tastings, Kids Fridays, Arts and Crafts classes to name just a few examples for weekday happenings.
