The German-themed market has been a tradition since 2001, when it was brought to life by volunteers aiming to raise funds for local charities, while creating a unique, public event along the idyllic boardwalk of the Lake Mohawk Country Club. Now recognized as the largest annual Christmas Market in New Jersey and the only German Christmas Market in the USA whose sole mission is to donate back into the community, it has become a local tradition.The Lake Mohawk German Christmas Market Foundation, Inc. is comprised of all-volunteer.

Members of the community donate their time and effort to plan, organize and run the Market. Thirty volunteers comprise the Committee, which is managed by the Board of Trustees, seven volunteers who are elected each year by the Committee. The Board oversees major decisions and ensures the mission is met. At the end of each Market, the Board and Committee host local charities that receive funds raised through the Market. Since its inception, the Market donated $271,000 back to the local community, helping 20 charities.
