The Made in Philadelphia Holiday Market will once again transform Dilworth Park into a holiday shopping wonderland from Saturday, November 23, 2019 to January 1, 2020. Over 50 artisans, designers, crafters and confectionaries from the greater Philadelphia region will offer decorations, gifts and holiday foods inside white, festively lit tents topped with original Herrnhut Stars. Just feet away from the tents will be the dazzling holiday Christmas Village Philadelphia Carousel delighting children of all ages in the City Hall Courtyard. The Made in Philadelphia Holiday Market and the Christmas Village Carousel join Wintergarden and the Rothman Ice Rink as part of many holiday festivities surrounding Center City this season.

Now in its 5th season, the Made in Holiday Market returns with the biggest variety ever – including many new food additions and more than 50 vendors in total.

Christmas Village spotlights gifts and unique finds from around the globe, whereas Made in Philadelphia Holiday Market gives attention to vendors from the tristate area.

Visitors will have the unique chance to shop gifts and products that can’t be found at a usual shopping mall – including artwork, home goods, ornaments, sweets, toys, apparel, jewelry, decorations and more. There will be something for everyone on Santa’s list!

New vendors like Philadelphia based City of Love Arts Cooperative, Old City Canning Co.  and Eric Ajama Art & Gifts will join the festivities while crowd’s favorite vendors like French Toast Bites, Independent Makers of Philadelphia and Beaucycled are coming back to make it the year with the biggest variety ever.

As visitors stroll through the vendors and check off their lists, they will also have the chance to experience live crafting demonstrations and artists making their wares. Enjoy the show and watch them how they use clay, glass, metal, wire and more to craft their unique products that will be sold at the market.

Visitors are also invited to warm up with hot cocoa and hot cider, plus a selection of local craft beer from Bar Hygge/ Brewery Techne at Fairmount Avenue. Holiday sweets and foods this year will also include French Toasts and jams, Philadelphia pretzels, french macarons, pickles, sugar cookies, cannoli and more. New this season: Look out for Philly Cheesesteak as the local signature sandwich.

While the white tents topped with beautiful stars will charm the exterior of City Hall, visitors will again find the dazzling Christmas Village Carousel inside the courtyard. The whimsical, ornate and grand carousel at the center of the City Hall Courtyard will give children of all ages a new holiday tradition. The 15 wood carved horses will be joined by five special reindeer and a Christmas sleigh this year for added fun. As an added bonus, don’t miss additional Christmas Village vendors set up around the City Hall Courtyard to compliment the carousel.
