Bellefonte Under the Lights: Winter Market

Thank you for the BEST Winter Market yet!

Thank you to the vendors, local businesses, volunteers, and thousands of residents and visitors who made this year's Winter Market the most successful yet!
We look forward to seeing you next year!

Join us for the Bellefonte Under the Lights: Winter Market

The Winter Market, first held in December 2018, is a European-style, open air market held during HBI’s Bellefonte Victorian Christmas.

This year’s event will be held in Talleyrand Park, near the gazebo, on December 12, 2021 from 12 to 4 p.m.

The Bellefonte Under the Lights:  Winter Market will feature approximately 70 skilled makers and artisan vendors, as well as food vendors, craft beverage vendors, and more. Spend a night Under the Lights with us — heat up in the warming tent, enjoy a craft beverage while you shop, attend a storytime or do a craft with the kiddos. There's something for everyone at the Winter Market!
