The Advent market will be held in Kossuth Square and the Piac Street pedestrian zone. The fair, which opens on 26th November, will feature a wide range of caterers and vendors offering handicraft products and heart-warming delicacies available for the duration of the Debrecen Advent Fair.
The smell of mulled wine and roasted chestnuts will waft around the huge pine tree, the ice skating rink, and the children’s railway in the main square, and there will also be hundreds of Christmas carol singers to evoke the spirit of Christmases past.
Debrecen’s iconic building, the Reformed Great Church, will also be transformed into a concert venue this Advent. The 15th edition of the Advent Concerts of the Great Church will feature Éva Csepregi, Attila Kökény and Viktor Rakonczai, Attila Dolhai and Luca Dolhai, Vera Tóth and the Budapest Jazz Orchestra, and Erika Miklósa.
The festivities will occur from 26th November for a month in various locations in Debrecen.
