Carmel Christkindlmarkt, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. The primary mission of the organization is to create and host an authentic, traditional German Christmas festival - the Carmel Christkindlmarkt. The festival has taken place for four years (2017-2021, skipping 2020 due to Covid-19), drawing 400,000+ visitors annually from mid-November through Christmas Eve, with the market expanding hours until New Year’s Eve in 2022. In 2019 and 2021, the Carmel Christkindlmarkt was voted the #1 Holiday Market in North America according to USAToday’s 10Best Readers’ Choice poll.

The mission of the Carmel Christkindlmarkt is supported by a small team of year-roundstaff and seasonal staff members. Our organization highly values the ability of our team members to work together, to adapt to changing circumstances, and to cultivate an atmosphere of shared success when engaging with each other, contract vendors, and guests of the Carmel Christkindlmarkt.
