Christmas fair

Get into that Holiday spirit on the Christmas Fair in Enschede! Short heart-warming acts, concerts and performances in cozy stalls.


During the Christmas Holidays the Oude Markt (Old Market square) and the Minkgaarde form the backdrop to a cultural Christmas-fair. Here you can buy fun Christmas gifts or warm up with a nice Glühwein (traditional mulled wine), freshly baked waffles or be a little adventurous and try the tapas from Twente.


Several (local) theatre groups, musicians, artists and cultural organizations join hands to get you into the Christmas spirit with, among other things, a nativity scene, live jukebox scene, and the chance to escape the wintery cold with a tropical surprise…


The fair take place from 19 December to the 24th of December and runs from the Wilminktheatre in the Minkgaarde to the Oude Markt.
