Christkindlmarket Naperville Brings the Christmas Spirit

December 3rd, 2018 by

Naperville ChristkindlmarketFrom Friday, November 23 to Sunday, December 24, Christkindlmarket Naperville is back for another year of festive fun, Yuletide shopping, and winter food and drink. Held at the Naper Settlement, it’s a great place to pick up stocking-fillers and enjoy the Christmas spirit.

What is a Christkindlmarket?

Christkindlmarket is one of the Chicago area’s most exciting winter festivals, so our course it’s a big hit in Naperville.

Drawing on German winter festival traditions, it’s the place to sip Glühwein from a souvenir mug and eat Germanic favorites like knockwurst and potato pancakes. Christkindlmarket quickly became popular enough to spawn new locations away from the main market in Daley Plaza. In 2016, a new Christkindlmarket opened at Naper Settlement to bring a whole new festive traditional to Naperville locals.
