// Date & Time //
We have spent much time submitting a considered COVID Management Plan application to navigate the restrictions and requirements to run the Hahndorf Christkindlmarkt in 2021. It is with much sadness that we advise that the expectations around managing people and the event in general with COVID restrictions this year, means we will need to cancel for the second year in a row. We look forward to 2022
Check back for 2022 dates.

// Event History //
The Hahndorf Christkindlmarkt is an annual European-style Christmas market based in the German town of Hahndorf, that captures the essence of community, celebration, fun, laughter & family enjoying time together, such as is found in many cities in Europe over the Christmas period, but in a warm Aussie setting. The market is organised and run by C3 Church Adelaide Hills, on their property, for the benefit of the Adelaide Hills Community and beyond.
