The Peoples Gas Holiday Market™ has been named the #1 Best Holiday Market in the country by USA Today!

Looking to find the perfect, unique gift for a loved one, friend, or coworker? Ready to soak in the holidays with some good food, entertainment, and sparkling sights? The Peoples Gas Holiday Market has it all!

Inspired by the original German Christkindlmarkts (or "Christmas Market"), the Peoples Gas Holiday Market brings a cherished European tradition to Pittsburgh with an international flair, a touch of local charm, and a pinch of sugar, spice, and everything nice. Drop on by Market Square in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh to see for yourself! As you weave through the Alpine-style wooden chalets, brimming with high quality gifts, you'll experience a one-of-a-kind holiday shopping experience.

Whether you come downtown to skate with your sweetheart around the Ice Rink, or visit Pittsburgh's Creche (the world's only approved replica of the Vatican's Nativity Scene) at the U.S. Steel Tower, your visit won't be complete without a stroll through the Peoples Gas Holiday Market. 

We love to see this city come alive with the bustle of the holidays, and we want you all to be a part of it. Do don't miss this chance to take in our beautiful city during the most wonderful time of the year! With a twinkle of lights, a few flurries in the air, and a warm drink in your hands, who knows...the Holiday Market might become a bit magical, if you just believe.

Mark your calendars now! The Holiday Market will open on Friday, November 19th, and will remain open until December 23rd, 2021 (Closed Thanksgiving).

  • Santa Zoom

    This year, the magic of a visit with Santa has been reimagined for a creative, safe experience. Santa Zoom gives your child the opportunity to have a real-time conversation with Santa live from the North Pole!

    Santa Zoom is free, with a suggested $5 to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. You'll receive a downloadable photo of the visit as a virtual keepsake. Every five dollar donation buys 25 meals for hungry children in our area.

    The Peoples Holiday Gas Market has raised more than $125,000 for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. We look forward to providing more hope and cheer to our neighbors this holiday season.

    Again this year, families have the option to visit with either a Black or white Santa during the Santa Zoom experience.
