What is the Christmas Village? An authentic German-style Christmas market right in the Inner Harbor at West Shore Park. The village features more than fifty craft vendors selling traditional European food, hand crafted Christmas gifts, jewelry, arts & crafts, ornaments and more. It offers fun for the kids with the ice rink located just steps away and appearances from Santa himself. The adults can also enjoy live performances, a heated tent that offers even more shopping and a pretty sweet deal on authentic German mulled wine ($5) and select $4 beers.
The exact address of the event is 501 Light Street, Baltimore MD 21230.
