For 2020, the Des Moines European Heritage Association (DMEHA) has announced that it will change its annual in-person holiday experience to “CDM Curbside,” presented by Christkindlmarket Des Moines.
This year’s event will feature an online marketplace open Nov. 9 to 22, hosting several vendor stores featuring unique holiday wares and edibles. After purchasing, customers can choose various drive-thru pickup times from Dec. 3 to 6, the weekend the traditional in-person market would have taken place.
Each year, people from all over the world visit Christkindlmarkets. The outdoor markets have become so popular and loved by everyone that has been exposed to them. Christmas Markets are no longer just a German tradition; they have traveled all across the world. The unique cultural and educational experience, typical European-inspired food and drink, as well as diverse holiday entertainment make Christkindlmarket Des Moines the perfect family destination.
