St Nicholas Christmas Fair

About us

Don’t miss York’s popular festive market, its back with more Christmassy fun than ever before...

Take a leisurely stroll along St Nicholas Fair and soak up the festive atmosphere, as you discover fine Yorkshire produce from crafters and makers showcased at the Made in Yorkshire Yuletide Village. If you’re looking for more traditional Christmas gifts, don’t forget to wander amongst the many alpine chalets on Parliament Street.

Head down to Kings Square and experience all the fun of the fair. Don't miss the opportunity to slide down a good old fashioned Helter Skelter.

Sample festive food and drink at the St Sampson’s Square rustic Yorkshire Barn with delicious treats including hot chestnuts and glasses of warming mulled wine. The Judge's Lodging will once again host the Small Business Christmas Market, where you can buy unique, locally crafted gifts.
