St Nicholas Fair 2016


St Nicholas Fair

The York St Nicholas Fair brings magical stalls and merriment from 17 November right up to 23 December. Soak up the atmosphere and aromas of warming mulled wine whilst you enjoy York’s ultimate Christmas experience.

Traditional chalets shine out from their positions along Parliament Street, St Sampson’s Square and The Judge’s Lodging, where Small Business Christmas will be taking place with stalls selling locally-made handcrafted gifts. Explore Davygate and Coppergate for inspired gift and stocking filler ideas or find local flavour at York’s famous Shambles Market.

Thor’s Tipi is back on Parliament Street after a popular first season. Cosy up around a log fire and enjoy a hot chocolate or something stronger. There’s mulled wine, Christmas cocktails and draft ales available from an independent licenced bar.

Market opening times:

Sun - Weds: 10:00 - 18:00

Thurs - Sat: 10:00 - 20:00
