There’s no better way to end the year 2023. The Szczecin Christmas Market will again introduce the magic of Christmas into the urban space. On December 1-23, the very centre of the city will turn into a land full of Christmas surprises. Wooden houses will appear, and in them Szczecin entrepreneurs (craftsmen and gastronomy) with their products. You will be able to do Christmas shopping, taste tasty, regional products, find a perfect Christmas gift or drink hot chocolate or mulled wine in special Szczecin cups.

What would a Christmas Market be without Christmas attractions, Christmas trees and Santa Claus? The unique atmosphere during the Fair will be ensured by beautiful Christmas decorations, embellished with Christmas songs that will resound from the radio station. There will also be special Christmas animations for every age.

Unique gifts

Something small for friends, something special for a husband, something practical for grandparents and colourful for children – there will be, we guarantee! The offer of Christmas gifts will be rich. The stands will feature wooden gifts and toys, hand-made jewellery, occasional outfits, unusual clothes, unique tea compositions, cosmetics, books, and board games. If you still have no ideas for gifts, come to the fair, and you will certainly find something for your loved ones here.

The Mill Wheel and the Venetian Carousel

This has never been seen at the Fair! Thanks to the 15-meter Mill Wheel, you will see the festive Szczecin from above. You will find the wheel at the end of Kwiatowa Avenue – near the sundial. At Adamowicz Square, you can take advantage of the charming Venetian carousel, which will take you on a unique, fairy-tale journey.

SELFie points

Are there any local influencers here? If so, at the Fair you will find something that will be perfect for posts, reports, and reels! Look for Christmas photo points well, and your reports will have plenty of likes and hearts. Ah, don’t forget to tag #szczecińskijarmark!

Bombkodzielnia

If you are planning to change the “outfit” of your home Christmas trees, we invite you to Bombkodzielnia. Come with your old baubles and choose something new for yourself. This Christmas in Szczecin’s homes will be fashionable and ecological!

Replace the old light with a new light

What to do with unnecessary Christmas lights? You can, for example, bring them to the Szczecin Christmas Fair. In one of the houses, the hostesses will accept used Christmas tree lights, and in return, they will give you a bauble.

Conifers for delicacies

If you also face a choice: buy a Christmas tree or do a good deed? You don’t have to bother any more! On the last day of the Fair, bring animal feed to us, and you will receive a wonderful conifer as a thank-you. The number of Christmas trees is limited.

Rudolph needs your help

Rudolph! But you’re staring! This helper of St. Santa was so rushing with presents that he lost them all. Find them all, photograph them, and for your exemplary help to Rudolf, you will receive a Christmas magnet.

Christmas Quiz

Gather your team and test your Christmas knowledge. Movies, legends, customs or dishes, do you know them all?

Letters to seniors

A kind word is enough to make someone feel better. Let’s not forget about those who will spend Christmas alone – let’s write letters to them, numerous letters! Come to the fair, write a few warm words, and the helpers of St. Santa will deliver letters to lonely seniors.

Reading fairy tales

Famous citizens of Szczecin will also visit the Fair and read many Christmas stories to the youngest.
