The German Christmas Market | Oconomowoc

Nestled against the shore of Fowler Lake in the newly expanded Village Green Park lies the promise of something great for you, your family and your friends this Thanksgiving weekend. Family is fun for the holidays, but what do you do with that crazy uncle, hyperactive cousin or boring aunt? Simple, pack them up and bring them to downtown Oconomowoc for a change of surroundings. The German Christmas Market has something for everyone regardless of age and tastes. It’s Germany meets Wisconsin mixed with holiday merriment. Come for an hour and stay for the day and night!

This event is a celebration of the hearty German community here in Wisconsin. Whether you are German or not, we promise you will feel like you are. There are warm tents and outdoor Beer Gardens, so weather matters little. We have special guests slated throughout the event and live entertainment from start to finish.
