Join us for the 2021 European Christmas Market at Union Depot

This year even more days of Holiday fun! We are very excited to announce that we are back for an in-person market in 2021 setting up our magical Christmas Village at Union Depot for four Holiday weekends. Visit the only authentic Christmas Market in Minnesota running through the advent season.

The European Christmas Market in St. Paul is the most authentic traditional holiday market of its kind in Minnesota, offering a unique shopping experience, family-friendly entertainment & intercultural activities. It is an admission-free public event based on the festive open-air Christkindl Markets that spring up in Germany, Austria, and other European countries during the Advent season.
