The Milford, CT Christmas Market was brought to the city by longtime Milford residents Jeffrey Albright and Stephen McCullough. Albright, a veteran airline pilot for United Airlines, fell in love with the outdoor German Christmas markets years ago on his many trips to Munich during the holiday season.
"I go to Germany once a week during the Christmas season. I immediately fell in love with the outdoor Christmas markets and thought they would be a wonderful addition to our picture-perfect green here in Milford," Albright says.
The Milford, CT Christmas Market will be open from 2pm to 9pm on Friday November 29th and 11am to 7pm on Saturday November 30th.
