About Christkindlmarkt

Sister Bay Historical Society’s 1st Annual Door County Christkindlmarkt! Come shop local artisans and vendors and enjoy warm drinks and food.

Today, Christmas markets are held all over the world, including Chicago and Europe, of course, and as far away as Singapore. And now, we have our first annual Door County Christmas Market in Sister Bay, WI, at our historical site, Corner of the Past Museum, located at Highway 57 & Fieldcrest Rd., to be held three consecutive weekends on Nov. 26-28, Dec. 3-5 and Dec. 10-12.

Our beautiful tree-filled grounds and historic buildings will be filled with artists selling their handmade art, crafts and Christmas ornaments under a myriad of twinkling lights. Imagine the air filled with the fragrance of sizzling bratwurst, roasted nuts, pastries and hot-spiced gluhwein. Children can enjoy hot apple cider or hot chocolate topped with whipped cream.

On select days, Santa Claus will be waiting in the cozy Anderson House to hear the children’s Christmas wishes while alpacas are grazing outside under the lit Christmas trees.

Christmas music fills the air as you stroll through the booths or warm yourself by one of the two fire pits.

There’s no better way to begin the Christmas holidays than to plan a friends’ or girls’ get-away-weekend or make new family Christmas traditions as you gather in the warm, friendly atmosphere of Christkindlmarkt in beautiful Door County.
