Oh, Christmas, how we missed you. The cold is fading while the distant sound of Mariah Carey is rising. Wishlists and plans are being drafted. And later this month, celebrations will begin. On Saturday, November 25, the CBD will become a winter (summer) wonderland courtesy of the Martin Place Christmas Markets.
Beginning in the final weekend of November, the markets will be a festive oasis of food, gifts, homewares — the list goes on. These markets will be the centre of the City of Sydney celebrations when live music soundtracks the season, performers and carollers roam the stalls, decorations deck the sandstone walls and a 24-metre Christmas tree dazzles from the end of November all the way up until Christmas Day.
Choirs will be popping up at Martin Place throughout December, and on Thursday, November 30, revellers can catch Santa enjoying a sleigh ride before lighting the tree, plus a festive firework show to usher in the season.
The Martin Place Christmas Markets will open from Friday, November 24 to Sunday, November 26. They'll then run every Thursday, Friday and Saturday until Sunday, December 23. For more information, visit the website.
