York Christmas Markets

Discover festive York

This Christmas, York has a fantastic programme of events beginning with the St Nicholas Fayre on 25 November.

It’s York's biggest and most popular Christmas market and sees the city come alive with Victorian costumed traders, carol singers and the delicious smells of roasted chestnuts and hot chocolate laced with brandy.The market sells a mixture of arts and crafts, gifts and locally produced food and drink.

York will also host an international Christmas Market every day until late from 1-19 December as Parliament Street goes global for the International Christmas Fayre bringing you goods from across the globe.Tickle your taste-buds at the food court, where liveried chefs serve global flavours, or amble through the Christmas trees to find that special gift from far away. Open daily from 9am until late.

And if you like things more local get along to the ‘Made In Yorkshire' craft market from 2-12 December on St Sampson's Square. Showcasing beautiful ceramics, jewellery, woodwork, glass, textiles, paintings and pottery, all made by local craftspeople, it's the place to go for those extra special and unique Christmas gifts.
