Become a Christkindlmarket Des Moines “Marktengel!”

Do you enjoy the thought of a warm mug of freshly mulled Glühwein while strolling through a European-themed Christmas market? Yeah… we thought so.

For the last four years, Iowans have had the unique opportunity to witness the birth and growth of their very own European Christmas market known as Christkindlmarket Des Moines (CDM). Our mission is to connect people with European traditions, language education and cultural experiences.

Now in its new home at Principal Park in downtown Des Moines, CDM can grow into the holiday market that Iowans truly deserve and want. But we need your help.

To ensure that CDM can thrive, please consider becoming a CDM Marktengel (market angel). For just $25, you can be a part of something that brings holiday cheer and cherished memories in 2020 and beyond. And, as a special thank-you for your donation, we’ll reserve a limited-edition 2020 CDM Glühwein mug for you before they run out at this year’s market.

Earn your “halo” today by becoming a CDM Marktengel. It’s a good deed that can keep Christkindlmarket Des Moines alive and growing for years to come!

Vielen Dank,
Suzanne Hull, CDM Director
