Christmas Lights


A Handmade Christmas

Frankenmuth is fondly known by some as "Christmas Town, USA." Here's one of the top reasons why.


For years, Frankenmuth Farmers Market has held the largest Christmas market in Saginaw County known as Frankenmuth ChristKindlMarkt. This traditional Christmas market, modeled after those held in Frankenmuth's sister region of Germany, brings a touch of magic to the city each year. It's full of artisans selling handmade gifts and goods.


You're sure to find the perfect gift for your family, friends, or even yourself, among our more than 40 vendors each year. 

We hope you will join us in Frankenmuth this holiday season and enjoy the Frankenmuth ChristKindlMarkt!
