Christmas shopping, markets and fairs

The Harrogate District is blessed with more than its fair share of festive markets and fairs over the Christmas period, with each of our market towns showcasing their festive character and spirit to visitors and locals to celebrate the festive season.

Unfortunately all our Christmas Markets and Christmas Shopping events have now taken place.  But there are plenty of great events taking place right through Christmas and New Year in and around Harrogate.  Please take a look.

 The Christmas Crafts Showcase at RHS Garden Harlow Carr starts the ball rolling where you’ll find festive gifts with a difference in the Bath House Gallery.

This is followed by Harrogate’s premier Christmas event, the Harrogate Christmas Market, with four day festival atmosphere including over 200 stalls offering food, drink and gifts from Yorkshire and much further afield. There is musical entertainment, children’s rides and much, much more.

The Harrogate Convention Centre is home to the Knitting and Stitching Show again this year with hundreds of exhibitors offering specialist textiles you just can’t find in the shops, and a week later the same venue hosts the not to be missed Country Living Christmas Fair boasting 300 crafters and designers bringing unique and inspirational ideas on decorating styling and cookery.

The market towns of Knaresborough, Ripon and Masham all stage their annual Christmas markets where you can browse at your leisure and pick up locally handmade arts, crafts, gifts, food and drink and enjoy some carols.   

In addition to all of the ‘pop up’ markets and fairs, there are gifts for all tastes to be found in the numerous shops and boutiques of Harrogate and the surrounding market towns, and with late night shopping available throughout the District there really is no excuse for not getting your Christmas stockings well and truly filled!
