Christmas Market this Weekend!

There were a variety of different German groups that settled in Pennsylvania and this weekend you can explore the holiday cultures of three of these groups!

A wonderful tour of Pennsylvania German Christmas traditions and folk art will be presented at three preservation societies near the Lehigh Valley.

CHRISTMAS MARKET is scheduled for this weekend, December 5 and 6, 2015.

Explore our beautiful region and these three cultural centers:

The Schwenkfelder Library and Heritage Center ( will have shopping and an elaborate Christmas Putz to view.  This is one of my favorite museums and just a short drive outside the valley.

The Mennonite Heritage Center( features a wide selection of reproduction folk art as well as other activities.

The Goschenhoppen Historians ( will transform Red Men's Hall into a Christmas wonderland!

I'm sure there will be food at all the venues and they are fairly close so you can tour all three!
