The Harmony Museum’s annual WeihnachtsMarkt, a Christmas market in the German tradition that has become a major regional attraction in the heart of Harmony’s National Historic landmark District.
The festival has also become the museum’s prime annual fundraiser while presenting seasonal gift-shopping in a family-fun atmosphere. The thousands of visitors who attend each year find handcrafted and German imports. Artisans and vendors are chosen to participate based on the quality of their offerings; no stereotypical "shopping mall festival" stuff here. Entertainment, food and refreshments also reflect Harmony’s German heritage.
Market hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and 12:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is $7 for adults, $5 for seniors, $3 for students, free for children younger than six, including all-day access to the market, museum, entertainment and wagon rides.
The eight-site Harmony Museum is operated by Historic Harmony, a nonprofit, volunteer historical society and preservation advocate established in 1943.
Almost 50 artisans and specialty vendors provide the market part of WeihnachtsMarkt. Museum quilters and weavers demonstrate their work. There are model railroad displays in the museum’s Wagner House annex.
