Christkindlmarket Returning To Wrigleyville In November

Spiced wine, hot pretzels, potato pancakes and more will be returning to Daley Plaza and Wrigleyville this holiday season, as Christkindlmarket plans to return in November, after the popular Christmas-themed festival was forced to go virtual last year due to the pandemic.

Christkindlmarket organizers announced Wednesday the German-themed Christmas festival will return to Daley Plaza and Gallagher Way outside Wrigley Field beginning Nov. 19.

“To our dear Chicagoans and visitors from afar – we can’t express how much we missed you all in 2020, and counting down the days until we can finally welcome you back!” organizers said in a Facebook post.

The festival will run at Daley Plaza, 50 W. Washington St., from Nov. 19 through Christmas Eve, and will be open Sundays through Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and on Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. On Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 25) and Christmas Eve (Dec. 24), the festival will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Wrigleyville festival will run from Nov. 19 through New Year’s Eve at Gallagher Way, 3635 N. Clark St., and will operate Mondays through Thursdays from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The Wrigleyville festival also will have special hours on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, and New Year’s Eve (Dec. 31), running from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. It will be closed on Christmas Day (Dec. 25).

Organizers plan to announce health and safety rules for Christkindlmarket closer to the festival’s opening.
