Kertsmarkt: Pella’s Dutch Christmas Market

Several years ago, a few community members from Pella, Iowa went to the Netherlands to experience traditional Dutch Christmas markets and brought the idea back for development in Pella. 2021 was their first year of Kerstmarkt, and the market is back for 2022.

Enjoy hot Dutch drinks and food, listen to live music, and wander through the various artisan’s booths, all inspired by the outdoor markets in the Netherlands. To see a preview of the vendors and products – visit their Facebook page –

During this same weekend, Pella is also holding their annual Christmas Tour of Homes.
