On each first weekend of December, the Tourist Office of Marchiennes organizes the traditional town Christmas market. Located in an entirely illuminated part of the town, more than thirty artisans and producers from France and Belgium will show their products. For you to feel totally immersed in Christmas magic, a special effort is made on the decorations and the various entertainments adapted to the yearly theme (Christmas tales, creative workshop, Christmas creche, fairy characters...).
Even if the event is less popular than the Cucurbitades, the Christmas market remains an important event that attracts lots of visitors each year.
It is organized in collaboration with the City of Marchiennes that programs since several years Santa's abseiling of the city hall buildings and a fireworks display to close the event.
Program available in November.
