Traditional Christmas bazaar in Veliko Tarnovo
Up to January 1 of the new year, “Marno Pole” park is a peculiar Christmas town, full of fabulous surprises.
For the first time, the attractions of the bazaar are located together with the festive stage in front of the entrance to the Summer Theatre. An interesting and festive music programme awaits you throughout the month with the participation of local performers, formations, and groups.
For the second year in a row, next to the traditional houses, the new wooden pavilions will be located to present an even greater variety of goods.
At the Christmas Bazaar you’ll find great Christmas gifts and decorations, lucky charms, candles, leather and woodwork, home and tree decorations, handmade jewellery, paintings, iris photography, and much more.
A Christmas flashmob in Veliko Tarnovo will light up the Christmas lights. The attractive event will take place exactly at 17:00 on December 1 (next Wednesday), next to the big Christmas tree in front of the Municipality. The flashmob was planned for this Friday (November 26), but due to the expected rain, it has been postponed to December 1.
The Christmas spirit and mood will be brought by the talents of the popular Junior Band brass band. The central part of the Old Capital will be voiced by popular melodies in a special arrangement, performed in the unique way, typical for the musicians from “Emilian Stanev” Secondary School.
The online bazaar “Christmas magic” by the Samovodska Charshia started on December 7th. Organizers of the event are AEK “Samovodska Charshia”, Wine Tasting Center and Samovodska Charshia Association.
The team of the Konstantin Kisimov Music and Drama Theatre in Veliko Tarnovo will present masterpieces of world opera and operetta classics. The traditional Christmas gala concert will be on December 22nd at 7 pm in the large hall of the theatre. The performance will be held with up to 30% of the total capacity of the hall, observance of physical distance and all other anti-epidemic measures issued by the Ministry of Health.
The Christmas bazaar in Veliko Tarnovo opened on Friday, November 27th, but there was no official opening due to the current situation. The initial idea this year was for the bazaar to have two locations – Marno Pole Park and the Samovodska Charshia, but due to the dissatisfaction of the residents of the Varusha neighbourhood, it was decided to be in Marno Pole Park only. The bazaar will remain until the end of December and will be open every day from 10:00 to 20:00.
