    View of the Peoples Gas Holiday Market in Market Square, Pittsburgh.

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. 

This year, additional precautions will be in place to ensure that guests can enjoy their time safely. 

  • A face mask or covering is required for all staff, vendors, and visitors.
  • Chalets and lines are spread out to encourage social distancing. Please do your part by staying at least 6 feet away from other visitors.
  • Do not touch or handle any products before you purchase them.
  • Please stay home if you are not feeling well.
  • Market capacity may be limited at times. Follow @DowntownPitt on Twitter for the latest updates.

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 27th for Black Friday, and will remain open until December 23rd, 2020.

Santa Zoom

Santa has gone high-tech!

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 safe, short, real-time conversation with Santa live from the North Pole!

In return for a suggested donation of just $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.

Santa Zoom is located between Market Square and PPG Place.
