Any thoughts on this event? Did anyone go last year? If so, how authentic is this? I'm hoping this comes across as real European/German vs. like a craft market. I see that Kathe Wolfarht has a booth so I'm wondering if this has an authentic feel. Looking forward to your responses. Thanks.

We'll be in town visiting family and I came across this event.

Wow, it must be too early in the year or this is one "dud" of an event, or I'm not calling it by the right name.

Anybody been? Have you heard of anyone that has gone? The one in Chicago is so popular. Any feedback would be welcome. Thanks in advance.

2008 was the first year for the event. I wasn't there, so I can't give an opinion. However, after looking at some of the pictures on their website, it looks like it something I'd like to check out during the holidays:

Thanks for the link; I'll have to take a gander.

I used to go to the Christkindlmarkt in Cincinnati every year -- that one's almost like an extension of Oktoberfest.

Bethlehem has a wonderful Christmas celebration. The whole town is decorated and there is a Christkindlmarkt with a Pennsylvania Dutch flair. ChristmasCity.org - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania - Homepage A little drive from Philadelphia, but an easy day trip.

Thanks, I guess I didn't realize that last year was the first year. Relative to the Bethlehem one, unfortunately we won't be in the area yet. Would be curious to hear back from anyone that attended the Dilworth Plaza one once it opens up. Thanks in advance. I've always wanted to go to one, I hear about them from my family in Germany all the time, especially the Nurnburg one.
