Our Mission

The German Christmas Market of New Jersey is a non-profit foundation with the purpose of creating a community event in Sussex County, New Jersey that celebrates the Christmas Holiday and raises funds to distribute back into the community.

We Give Back

On March 12th, we handed out a record amount of annual grants and in-kind donations to Sussex County charities and the tune of $102,850!!  This brings our grand total since the Market began in 2001 to just shy of half a million dollars!! 


We are so grateful to our sponsors, volunteers, vendors and of course the public for making this all possible.

Ticket Sales

After much deliberation and a careful and thorough assessment of our expenses, the Board of Trustees for the German Christmas Market of NJ has concluded that we need to begin charging admission in order to cover the growing expenses required to put on this memorable event. 


For over 20 years, we have been able to host this event without admission or parking charges.  However, as the event has grown in size and scope, the overhead costs have also grown. While we would prefer to keep this event free to all, we need to ensure we remain true to our mission of giving back to local charities and still maintain the atmosphere the public has come to expect.

Online ticket pre-sales will begin in mid-October. Watch for a link on our Home page.


The price structure is as follows:

  • Kids 12 & under:  FREE (No ticket necessary)

  • Veterans:  FREE (No ticket necessary)

  • Adults & teens (13 & up):  $10 at the door

  • Seniors (65 & up):  $7

Please print a clear copy of your tickets with a QR Code to show at the gate.
