Description

The global Belfast Christmas Market returns to City Hall Gardens, bringing with it a traditional taste of Christmas.

The Belfast Christmas Market attracts visitors from across Europe and the UK and has become a significant contributor to the local economy.  This year the food court at the Market with bench style seating makes a welcome return, as does the vintage Helter Skelter, offering stunning views right across the market, and the much-loved carousel.

Support for local food and craft has increased with a number of St George’s Market traders joining in the festive fun. Some local favourites will also be returning including Pappas Minerals, Tapitas and Rossi’s Ice Cream.

This year the winners of the Jolly Big Business Boost competition (previously Pitch Perfect), judged by The Gourmet Boys are The Little Salty Seahorse, offering hand crafted pictures and trinkets made from sea glass and pebbles.

As well as even more local flavour, the Market still offers something a little bit different with 21 nationalities from all over the world bringing all sorts of unusual foods and gift ideas: crêpes from France, Dutch pancakes, Belgian chocolates, an exotic selection of ostrich, wild boar and crocodile burgers, giant bratwurst from the iconic Schwenkegrill, Spanish paella and sweets from Italy. Visitors can also treat themselves to the well-known Hug in a Mug of Gluhwein from the prize winning Kochem vineyard located in the Mosel Valley, Germany, or end the day in one of the bars serving local and continental drinks to get even more into the Christmas spirit.

There is so much on offer throughout the city this year and the Christmas Market is just one of several events launching as part of the Christmas festivities.

It regularly attracts over one million visitors and contributes an economic impact to the city in and around £75.m, demonstrating the citywide benefit of such a large and well organised event.

To keep track of Christmas Market news, and the ever-important weather updates, follow the official Facebook page at Belfast Continental Christmas Market and keep an eye out for our fabulous social media activity in conjunction with our media partners Q radio who will be offering spot prizes and lots of opportunities to engage.
