Arras Christmas Market

Posted under Arras Christmas market

The Arras Christmas Market takes place every December in the centrally located square called “Grand’ Place“. It is one of the most popular Christmas markets in northern France, attracting more than 500,000 visitors from within France and abroad.


Around 250 different exhibitors, from all around the world, set out their wares on the beautiful arcaded Place selling local crafts, gifts, decorations and food.

Magic of Christmas, heat of the wood, nice smells, street shows and twinkling lights offer real moments of conviviality.

    Just wanted to ask if we need to register or to go into any kind of procedure in order to get a stand, to sell our products during the “festival”.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Cedric,

    To get a stand, I think you have to pay a fee but this has to be done many months in advance. I don’t know what is the exact procedure, so I can only advise you to contact the Arras Tourist Office. They will be able to refer you to the right people.
