Inspired by the original German Christkindlmarkts, the 4th Annual Peoples Gas Holiday Market will bring a cherished European tradition to Downtown Pittsburgh that mixes international flair with local charm. Visitors experience a one-of-a-kind holiday shopping village as they stroll through an illuminated Market Square, weaving through Alpine-style wooden chalets, brimming with high quality gifts.
The Holiday Market in Market Square will showcase the city’s diverse cultural heritage with daily live performances. Be sure to visit Santa in his Downtown Pittsburgh home right in the heart of the Holiday Market. In return for a donation to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, you will receive a complimentary photo with Santa!
When visiting the Holiday Market, be sure to visit the BNY Mellon Season of Lights which illuminates the heart of Downtown Pittsburgh, Market Square, with more than 150,000 lights and a 30’ high electronic sphere tree! Every half hour after dark, Market Square will twinkle and dance with a dazzling light show, choreographed to a high energy medley of holiday tunes!
The Holiday Market starts Friday, November 20 and runs until Wednesday, December 23 in Market Square in Downtown Pittsburgh. For more information, visit the Holiday Market webpage.
