The Harmony Museum’s annual WeihnachtsMarkt, a Christmas market in the German tradition that has become a major regional attraction, and we are excited to bring it back in 2021, as our market is our prime annual fundraiser for the Harmony Museum and the 9 properties we own and maintain to keep history alive for generations to come.
The thousands of visitors who attend each year found handcrafted and German imports. Artisans and vendors have been chosen to participate based on the quality of their offerings; no stereotypical “shopping mall festival” stuff here. Entertainment, food and refreshments have also reflected Harmony’s German heritage.
Almost 50 artisans and specialty vendors provide the market part of WeihnachtsMarkt. And lots of your favorites will be back and some exciting new ones as well!
You can also Download the program here to see more information including a basic map of the town and Market area. This also includes information about some of the other eateries and shops in town you won’t want to miss!

Stop by the Gluhwein Booth, buy a souvenir mug
and we will fill it with genuine German style hot mulled wine.
Gluhwein, (red wine, apple cider and mulling spice), is a favorite in Germany at their traditional
Christmas Markets and we have brought the original recipe to Harmony.
If you prefer a nonalcoholic beverage, take the mug to the beverage booth,
near the food booth, and they will fill it with apple cider, coffee, hot chocolate or tea.
Browse through Bottlebrush and be sure to stop in at the
Christmas Room! We are sure you will enjoy the visit.
