Food, shopping, prizes and festive fun for the whole family at the German Christmas Fest on December 4-5. Spend the first weekend of December in the streets of Germany without even leaving Mumbai.
The fourth edition of the Indo-German Chamber of Commerce’s annual Mumbai Christmas Fest at the Mahalaxmi Race Course promises to be bigger, better, tastier and more fun than ever before.
As always, the Race Course will be transformed into an outdoor Christmas bazaar that is typical of German towns. But this year, there’s a lot more in store, both for first-timers and old-timers.
Get a taste of Germany at the special Beer Garden and the F & B Area, where you can try a whole range of German specialties and drinks like Erdinger Weiss Beer, Beer mixes, German Sausages etc to thrill your taste buds!
Have a merry time browsing through dozens of market-style stalls, selling everything from clothes, shoes, bags, jewellery and home décor to gifts, furniture, Christmas decorations, chocolates and dates at very special prices. Take in the sounds of the season with shows from some of Mumbai’s favourite performers like Gary Lawyer, and find new favourites as the Indo-German Chamber flies in an authentic German Band, Die Sulmtaler. There’s a dance, magic, puppet, even a fire-juggler to add a sparkle to the festive season. And if you’re feeling creative, try your hand at ceramic painting, or making traditional decorations.
Wondering what’s in it for the kids? They get their very own Kids Corner, where they can play basketball, assemble puzzles, get a tattoo or a caricature and make new friends in the spirit of the season. Santa will be there too! And if you’ve signed up for a photo op, you can even take home a wonderful souvenir to remind you of your moment with him!.
The Christmas Market is a big event with an even bigger heart. A special NGO section ensures that the more you shop, the more you help the underprivileged.
Let your heart race on Sunday as you watch the thrilling Racing Carnival where some of our key partners will have sponsored races. You will be able to see the best horses in India compete for The HDFC Ergo Cup, The Bayer Trophy, The DSV Trophy, The Lufthansa Cup among others. Make sure you put your money on the right horse and you could go home a very happy person.
"Christmas comes just once a year, but at the German Christmas Market, two whole days of merry making add up to an experience of a lifetime! ", adds Mr Vivek Jain, Chairman, RWITC.

Marg, Mahalaxmi.
