Amherst German Christmas Market


Welcome to the Amherst German Christmas Market!

Nestled in the heart of the picturesque Amherst Village Historic District in New Hampshire, our market brings a unique blend of American yuletide charm and traditional German Christmas festivities. As a proud 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the Amherst German Christmas Market is more than just an event; it’s a community celebration, steeped in warmth and communal spirit.

Our Mission

Our market was born from a desire to offer a special Christmas event for people of all ages in Amherst and its neighboring communities. We bring together the warmth of American holiday customs and the charm of German Christmas traditions in a welcoming, community-focused setting.


The heart of our market is the community itself, with every aspect organized by local volunteers. These individuals, who are your neighbors and friends, contribute their time and energy to create a memorable and authentic holiday experience.

Small-Town Community Focus

Set in the historic ambiance of Amherst, our market maintains a cozy, community-centric atmosphere. While we may not have the grandeur of large-scale city events, we pride ourselves on offering a genuine, heartfelt experience that celebrates the joy and togetherness of the holiday season.

Stroll through our market and discover an assortment of local vendors offering unique gifts, crafts, and delicious foods. This diverse range of offerings embodies the delightful fusion of American and German holiday traditions, providing a festive shopping experience for everyone.

For the Community, By the Community

The essence of the Amherst German Christmas Market is its focus on community spirit and collective celebration. Our event is a place for people to come together, enjoy the festive season, and make lasting memories with family and friends.
