It’s easy to see why the Lake Mohawk German Christmas Market in Sparta, NJ continues to be ranked as “One of the Top Ten Things to Do in December in the State” – it’s simply at the top of the “to do” list for festive shoppers. This magical German Christmas Market beckons to all, with beautifully crafted and unique gifts from vendors near and afar. With the perfect backdrop of beautiful Lake Mohawk…why go anywhere else? The authentic wooden huts generously created by a local artisan, John Kweselait of Custom Wood Furniture, have simply enhanced the enchanting festive atmosphere. In the 15 years since its humble beginning of raising funds for local charities and organizations, it is now truly recognized as New Jersey’s largest Christmas Market, attracting over 18,000 to Lake Mohawk during the weekend. The German Christmas Market also continues to enjoy a special visitor – St. Nicholas, himself, and features a “new” fun activity for children this year -a pony ride and petting zoo – which is located at the main entrance of the Lake Mohawk Country Club in the circle drive.
Two Park & Ride locations are provided allowing for a stress free visit. To enjoy the festivities ( and to avoid possible parking tickets imposed by the police being very vigilant of local parking restrictions), many folks choose to use Park & Ride to ensure they arrive at the Market stress free. (Parking is difficult near the Christmas Market itself as parking space are extremely limited). Park & Ride is available from 2 locations in Sparta and drops off directly in White Deer Plaza. For more details see Directions.
Since 2001, the total donations back to the community have exceeded $159,000.
The charities and organizations being recognized from the money raised from the 2015 German Christmas Market will take place on March 13th. The amount donated back to the chosen charity swill be updated here after that date….watch out for details!
