When do Christmas Markets Usually Open in the US?
In the US, the dates for Christmas markets are typically unknown until a few months before the holiday season, but there are (of course) trends.
It’s crucial to keep in mind that US Christmas markets have much more flexible dates than their European counterparts, who are often centered around Advent weekends.
While some of the bigger US Christmas markets are open for several weeks, others are just open for one day.
However, in general, Christmas markets in the US start the weekend before Thanksgiving and last until the first few weeks of January.
