Carmel’s Christkindlmarkt returns after pausing in 2020

CARMEL, Ind. (WISH) — The Carmel Christkindlmarkt returns Saturday after being canceled in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Organizers are eager to return and make the market even better. 

“The market is going to be more magical than even, with more sparkly lights everywhere, new food, and new vendors,” Carmel Christkindlmarkt CEO Maria Murphy said.

New this year, Actors Theater of Indiana will present a musical Christmas revue in the pavilion four times daily on Saturdays and Sundays during the market.

“We think having a show like this will add value to the guest experience,” Murphy said.

The market is open from 4-9 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays and from noon-9 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through Dec. 24.
