Celebrate the kick off of the Holiday season 2019 with us on November 30th and December 1st!

Traditional Christkind Ceremony

Come join us for our Christkind Weekend on November 30th and December 1st, 2019. Once again, the original Christkind from Germany will come over to officially welcome this years' Christmas season with her traditional opening prologue, which is set for Sunday, December 1st starting at 3:00 pm with a kick off performance of the Camden Catholic High School Band.

Bring your friends and family to take photos with her while she does her traditional walk over the market. In Germany, she is the person who brings kids their Christmas gifts and she will not come to Philadelphia empty handed!
