Debrecen Advent Fair Opens at Kossuth Square

Debrecen celebrates Advent with lighting the candles of the Christmas tree of the city each year. Games, candle-lighting and Advent Church concerts at the Reformed Great Church await those celebrating together on the city’s main square.

The Debrecen Advent Fair (Christmas Market) opens at Kossuth Square and Piac Street on November 23, offering a cozy community space with unique handicrafts, irresistible delicacies and soul-warming hot drinks to fortify oneself against the cold. 

On the streets filled with the smell of fresh cakes and spicy mulled wine, we can better prepare for Christmas.

With a total of one hundred street vendors with their handmade products and hearty delicacies, you are bound to find the ideal seasonal gifts for loved ones.
