The Christkindl Village is a celebration of the holiday with a traditional Christmas Market, presented by St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church. This event, that attracts thousands, is in its 6th year and is a lasting tradition for the people of Indianapolis and their visitors, including a canopy of lights, live Nativity, kids’ and teen activities, photos with St. Nick, German foods, Beer and Wine Garden, musical performances including caroling, and the sights, sounds and smells of Christmas. We hope that you will join us in the expansion of the Christmas Market, providing gifts, goods, treats, arts, or crafts for our patrons to purchase. The event and market will take place in the parking lot at St. John’s and on the West Block of Georgia Street.
For more information see our Vendor Flier or contact Brittany Scher, Director of Finance.
