Avignon at Christmas

Avignon’s Christmas Market (Marché de Noel)  in the Place d’Horloge (1 December 2018 – 6 January 2019)

Then, on a December Saturday the square in front of the Palais des Papes (Palace of the Popes) in Avignon (84 Vaucluse, Provence/PACA) will also be the setting for a splendid Christmas pageant. The backdrop of the palace is always impressive and with Christmas spirit abounding this should be worth a visit and a diversion from Christmas shopping in the many specialist shops and boutiques which the city offers.

An amazing new event for everyone who wants to enter the legend of Father Christmas. A unique, magical performance in front of the Palace of the Popes, a thirty-minute show featuring special effects, giant sets, fireworks and beautiful lighting to tell a wonderful story which takes place in Provence. After the show, young and old alike can meet Father Christmas and his elves, who will be distributing hot chocolate, Christmas crackers and surprises.
