The German American Chamber of Commerce of the Midwest first held Chicago's Christkindlmarket on Pioneer Court in 1996. Christkindlmarket was inspired by the Christkindlesmarkt in Nuremberg, Germany. In 1997, Mayor Daley requested that the festival be moved to Daley Plaza. That year the market attracted more than 750,000 visitors. By 1999, the Christkindlmarket had become part of the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival. In recent years, Chicago's Christkindlmarket has become the largest Christmas market in the United States, hosting well over 1 million visitors annually. In 2016, Christkindlmarket expanded to the Chicago suburb of Naperville.
