CARMEL, IN – After a successful opening day with nearly 10,000 visitors, the Carmel Christkindlmarkt and The Ice at Center Green will open on Friday at 1 p.m. to kick off the Thanksgiving weekend with new holiday traditions in Carmel. Here is the weekend schedule:


Thanksgiving Day – Closed

Friday – 1-10 p.m.

Saturday – 1-10 p.m.

Sunday – 1-9 p.m.


There is no admission fee to the Christkindlmarkt, but there are fees associated with ice skating and skate rentals. Go to for more information.


In order to improve your experience, the City of Carmel is adding new street signs to help direct visitors who may not be familiar with the area. Those signs will direct incoming traffic off Keystone Parkway or U.S. 31 to Range Line Road and the entrance to the new Veterans Way Garage, the most convenient place to park for the Christkindlmarkt and Ice at Center Green.


The garage is located south of the roundabout at City Center Drive (126th Street) and Range Line Road behind Graeter’s Ice Cream shop, 864 S. Range Line Road. Veterans Way Garage is a short walk through Carmel City Center to Center Green.


All market huts are equipped to handle cash and credit card transactions. There is also an ATM on site. If you plan to skate, you may bring your own skates and only pay for time on the ice. There is also a skate rental shop. Restrooms are conveniently located just west of the Monon Greenway at Center Green. There are fire pits and heaters on the grounds of the Christkindlmarkt, but please dress appropriately for cold weather.
