CDM Curbside 2020

The CDM Curbside online marketplace will be open November 9 at 12:01am – November 22 at 11:59pm. You must schedule curbside pickup at Principal Park December 3 – 6. Vendors will not be on site during curbside pickup.


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.

CDM Curbside customers can pre-order all of their favorite items traditionally found at Christkindlmarkets from the vendors they’ve come to know and love AND a few new faces. Customers can peruse traditional food and hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind gifts in advance and pick up their purchases at Principal Park during the Curbside Pickup.

No need to leave your vehicle

No need to schedule multiple pickups from multiple vendors
