The Harbourside Christmas Market 2018

Bristol’s biggest independent Christmas Market returns from November 24th for four festive-fuelled weekends. Expect live music, mulled drinks and merry vibes aplenty!

Once again, the Harbourside Christmas Market will take centre stage in one of the city’s most scenic settings, creating an ethical, independent alternative to the high street.

Our Makers’ Market, nestled along the waterfront’s historic covered walkway, showcases up to 40 of the city’s creators, small businesses and makers, specialising in unique, Bristol-made gifts and artisan design.

This year, we’re also building a vibrant street food square over one of the under-used fountains in the centre.  There’ll be space to welcome up to 20 of the south-west’s finest food stalls, offering world food made with local ingredients next to a covered seating area, live music every day, and a festive bar serving up organic mulled wine and spiced Somerset cider. Yes, please.

If you’re from out of town, you’ll find us right amidst the hustle and bustle of Bristol’s city centre, just a couple of minutes walk from the ice rink outside We the Curious, and a snowball’s throw from the Hippodrome.  Join us for something mulled, before going for a browse.


The market runs every weekend from 11am ’til 5pm, starting Sat 24th November.
