The Porvoo Christmas market opens on the 25th of November in a familiar way with the winter event called the Winter Bazaar and thereafter it will be open from November 26th until December 12th. The Christmas market is open daily between 12 noon and 6 p.m. except on Saturdays when the market and the carousel are open between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Market stalls owned by Porvoo city will be placed at the market square in order to be used at the Christmas market and entrepreneurs and other agents may lease them at a good price. The market stalls can be leased at Porvoo city’s webshop.
Christmas mood is created also by spruce twigs, lights and the awesome traditional carousel which visitors can use for free during the entire month and always according to the Christmas market’s opening hours. During the previous two years the carousel has been popular, and it has been visited more than 20 000 times each year. A domestic animal farm will visit the area and a Santa Claus from the Santa Claus Foundation will visit the market during several occasions. Local agents may arrange small events in the area on condition that they are open to everybody.
The novelty for the Christmas market 2023 is a covered fireplace where visitors can enjoy the pleasant atmosphere by the fire. It is open during the Christmas market’s opening hours.
