What is the Provo Christmas Market? {2014}

Provo's Christmas Market

Saturday December 6, 4-8PM

Center Street Provo

What is the Provo Christmas Market? It's Provo's take on a Weihnachtsmarkt, a German Christmas Market. Traditionally a European Christmas Market takes place in the town square and has local food and craft vendors along with local music and dancing.  Provo's Christmas Market will have these attractions as well. Center Street is our designated town square, and will be packed with over 40 vendors displaying their seasonal wares and food trucks and stalls selling warm food and drink.

At the peak of the event, we will have Santa and Mayor Curtis usher in the Christmas season with a Lighting Ceremony (6:30pm). Afterwards, Santa will stick around to take pictures with the kids. We will have reindeer and llamas, hot chocolate and live music. This is one seasonal event you will want to make a new family tradition!
