Union Depot European Christmas Market

December 6, 2019 @ 11:00 am - December 22, 2019 @ 9:00 pm


The European Christmas Market (ECM) is a free event held outside on the East Plaza at Union Depot in Saint Paul, Minn. Serving as the “Hub for the Holidays,” Union Depot hosts an array of events that will coincide with the Market – including Tree Lighting and Movie Night, Bake Sale, Northstar Holiday Train and the North Pole Express. The historic Lowertown sets a fantastic scene for the booths beautifully decorated for Christmas and modeled after those found at the Munich and other Christkindlmarkts. Few events like this exist in the Twin Cities and thus ECM fills that need while reviving an old cultural tradition.

The Market offers visitors unique and handcrafted items, such as Christmas ornaments, nutcrackers, beeswax candles, decorative glass, wool mittens and scarves, jewelry and more. In addition, Holiday fragrances of Glühwein, roasted nuts, sizzling sausages and more will be served adding ambience and delight to visitors’ palates.

European Christmas Market provides a cultural event to the heart of the city that will entertain the whole family and familiarize them with 500-year-old world traditions and culture. The event creates an ambience and celebration — to bring light to the dark of winter and add to the good will of the Christmas spirit.
