St Nicholas Fair 2017


St Nicholas Fair

16 Nov - 22 Dec 2017

York’s favourite festive market is back and more spectacular than ever before...

Meander through the magical market stalls of St Nicholas Fair and delight in a truly special shopping experience. Wander inside traditional chalets adorned with twinkling lights and follow the aromas of mulled wine and tempting treats to the new Yorkshire Barn for a taste of yule themed Yorkshire fodder.

Be the first to the fair on Festive First Night, commencing the celebrations across York. The 16 November will see the official opening of St Nicholas Fair and the Christmas light switch-on, illuminating the city and making the medieval bar walls even more magnificent. Scandinavian style stalls will light up the winter days along Parliament Street, St Sampson’s Square and The Judge’s Lodging, where the Small Business Christmas Market will be the home of handcrafted gifts, plus there’s inspired presents aplenty in Coppergate. Local flavour will fill York’s famous Shambles Market and Food Court and there’s decorative details on offer at the new Made in Yorkshire Yuletide Village. After shopping, take time to relax around a roaring log fire at cosy canvas hang-out Thor’s Tipi, where you can warm up with a hot chocolate or something a little stronger.

Market opening times:

16 Nov - 22 Dec

Sun - Weds: 10:00 - 18:00

Thurs - Sat: 10:00 - 20:00
