After taking a year off due to concerns around the coronavirus pandemic, Historic Schaefferstown Inc.’s annual Christkindlmarkt returns this weekend, Friday and Saturday, Dec. 10 and 11.

More than 20 skilled artisans will be in attendance with plenty of early American and Pennsylvania German crafts for sale, perfect for last-minute gifts.

St. Paul’s UCC, at 1304 Heidelberg Ave., will host the event this year, with organizers noting that plenty of off-street parking is available.

Unlike your traditional 18th-century Christkindlmarkt, credit cards will be accepted at this event.

Hours are from 4 to 8 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.

If you have questions about the event, check out the Facebook event here or reach out to HSI directly at 717-949-2244.
