From Saturday, December 3, the traditional Old Town Christmas Market in Doma Square will open its doors for the 23rd time. The Market will be open until 7 January 2024. You can feel the Christmas atmosphere, buy gifts and enjoy a wide cultural programme. Thousands of lights, special festive decorations and Christmas music will decorate the Market, creating a joyful and festive atmosphere. You will be able to see and buy souvenirs, home-made products and crafts, as well as enjoy a variety of food and drinks from more than 80 traders.
Every year, the Market also thinks of its youngest visitors. As in previous years, Santa and the elves will be on hand at the weekends in Dome Square. You can also ride the carousel, send a letter to Santa Claus, see live sheep and go on pony rides.
The Market includes an extensive cultural programme. It will delight visitors with traditional and folk entertainment, as well as DJ dance nights. A wider range of cultural activities is planned for the weekends. On Fridays, well-known Latvian DJs such as Artis Volfs, All-Viss, DJ Aspirīns and others will entertain visitors with a fun atmosphere and music accompaniment for winter dancing in the snow. On Saturdays and Sundays, various folk and amateur groups, choirs and children's vocal ensembles will perform. Santa Claus and the Market elves are an integral part of the Market during the holidays.
