The Mifflinburg Christkindl Market was founded in 1987 and is the oldest authentic Christkindl market in the United States. When it was founded, the Market initially had 20 huts spread over a one block area of Market Street. Since then, the Market has expanded to over 100 huts across two and a half blocks in the heart of Mifflinburg, Pennsylvania. It has become an important Christmas tradition for families near and far and welcomes thousands of visitors each year.
Nuremberg's Christkindl Market has 180 huts and operates for a nearly month. The city's population is more than half a million people, while Mifflinburg's population is only slightly above 3500 and its market with 100 huts is open for just three days!
