about the market
Waikato's very own Christmas market is here, featuring a gorgeous selection of quality artisan goods and beautifully handcrafted gifts, fine art, skincare, wooden toys, leather ware, candles, fresh food and more, all showcasing our talented local enterprise.
Set in the beautiful grounds of Claudelands; we bring the charm and magic of Christmas to the fabulous Barn for a festive market like no other.
You'll find unique gifts for that special someone, and soak up the Christmas atmosphere with delicious fresh food to enjoy, live music, and special appearances from Santa himself.
charity of choice
We're proud to name Clothe our Kids Waikato as our 2020 charity of choice for Waikato Christmas Market.
Nikki and Nicole are two Mum's who began this work to help lift children out of poverty by providing good second hand clothing to kids in need in the Waikato.
They accept donations of clean quality children's clothing and distribute to families in need, providing clothing to children from Newborn to 12 years.
$1 from every ticket sold will go towards this awesome local cause.
Huge thanks to our 2020 sponsors for their support towards Waikato Christmas Market.
