The annual Traditional German Christmas Market in December at the GISW (with more than 3000 visitors from the school and DC area community!), featuring local and regional vendors and authentic German cuisine.
There is always German Wooden Christmas Ornaments from the Erzgebirge, Advent Wreaths, a variety of European Christmas Decoration and Christmas Gifts.
The Christmas Market is held at the German International School Washington D.C. In 2020 , due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and in oder to continue the year long tradition, the FRIENDS of the GISW organized a Virtual Christmas Market. Visitors ordered the usual traditional products using our secure webstore and payment options, chose to either have their goods be deliver to their homes or pick them up at a Christmas Market Drive-Thru event held at the school on Saturday December 5, 2020.
In 2021, we are conducting the German Christmas Market in Virtual form again, folowed by a Drive-Thru event with traditional German ambience.
