Each year, Peoples Gas Holiday Market transforms Market Square in downtown Pittsburgh into a winter wonderland, featuring dozens of vendors and a unique array of gifts and collectibles.
Inspired by the original Christkindlmarkt created in 1545 in Nuremberg, Germany, and the Christkindlmarkt in Chicago, IL, Peoples Gas Holiday Market™ brings a cherished German tradition with international flair and local charm to downtown Pittsburgh. Visitors to Peoples Gas Holiday Market™ can donate a suggested amount of $5 to Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. This year, Santa is too busy at the North Pole, so visitors will visit virtually with Santa. Each visitor receives a screenshot photo and link with the virtual interaction with Santa.
