Long Version: Returning for its 5th anniversary season, Christmas Village in Baltimore will once again transform West Shore Park at Baltimore's Inner Harbor into an authentic German Christmas market! Starting from Thanksgiving and running until Christmas Eve (November 23rd – December 24th, 2017), a large variety of weekday and weekend events designed to please young and old await to be explored! Over 50 local and international vendors – located both inside a huge heated festival tent and outdoors in traditional wooden booths – will offer their unique giftware! Always a must-see: the famous German vendor Käthe Wohlfahrt, which features genuine German arts and crafts such as Schwibbogen, Pyramids, Glass Ornaments, Nutcrackers and Incent Smokers. Enjoy a large variety of German foods such as freshly grilled Bratwurst with a side of homemade Sauerkraut, Schnitzel with Potato Salad, Leberkäse (German meatloaf), a Berlin style Currywurst and of course our delicious Pretzels!
