Christkindlmarket Debuts in Milwaukee
By Livia Peterson
As the holiday festivities are gearing up in the Milwaukee theatre scene, it is time to shop until we drop. The Milwaukee Christlkindlmarket, hosted by the Milwaukee Bucks’ Fiserv Forum (1111 Vel R. Phillips Avenue in downtown Milwaukee) recently debuted on Saturday, November 17, 2018.
The Christkindlmarket honors Milwaukee’s German and European heritage. While Chicago provides the largest Christkindlmarket, Milwaukee is able to finally join in on the fun. The vendors include Austrian Lodge, Baked Cheese Haus, Milwaukee Pretzel Company, and many more.
The Christkindlmarket closes on Monday, December 31, 2018. Free admission. The Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve hours are 11am to 4pm. The Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday hours are 11am to 8pm. The Friday and Saturday hours are 11am to 9pm.
