MILWAUKEE -- A few months ago, Milwaukee Bucks President Peter Feigin announced that the Christkindlmarket would be coming to Milwaukee's Fiserv Forum for the first time ever, and now we're just days away from the grand opening. 

Taking place at the Entertainment Plaza outside of Fiserv Forum, the Christkindlmarket will debut on Saturday, Nov. 17 and run through New Year's Eve. 

The traditional German holiday market will be open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday, Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. 

This year's festival will provide visitors with traditional German food, drinks, live entertainment collectibles and gifts for all ages.
