Great news! Atlanta’s Christkindl Market returns in 2023. This German-style street festival and holiday market is one of our favorite events here at Atlanta on the Cheap. It is FREE to attend.
The market will open for a preview before Thanksgiving — from Friday, Nov. 17th to Sunday, Nov. 19th.
It will then open for good on Friday, Nov. 24th and run through Christmas Eve.
Once again, the Christkindl Market takes place at Buckhead Village shopping district, around the corner of Buckhead Avenue and North Fulton Drive. In previous years the quaint German village was set up at Centennial Olympic Park and at Atlantic Station.
Christkindl Market is the city’s largest winter festival. It features a German Christmas village with 80 vendor booths that are fashioned as Bavarian-style wooden chalets. It is FREE to attend — just bring your wallet to shop and eat.
You can enjoy authentic German food and beverages — including Glühwein, hot chocolate, spiced cider, pretzels, schnitzel, bratwurst, and more.
The market is a great place to shop for holiday gifts, or to add holiday decor items to your own collection. You’ll find ornaments, nutcrackers, traditional beer steins, and toys.
