Experience our award winning Top 100 Festivals & Events in Ontario! Kitchener City Hall has been home to Canada's original Christkindl Market since 1996. Every Christmas, since medieval times, towns and cities across Germany come alive with the sights, sounds and smells of Christmas.
This year we have further expanded the festival to include more huts along King Street where you can enjoy Gluhwein, sweet and savoury food to eat now or take home. Shop outside and inside from over 90 vendors while you listen to choirs, bands and dance groups. Take in the train room, blacksniths demonstrations, live nativity and take a photo with one of our folkloric characters. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter!
