Christmas Fair in Red Square

Moscow's main Christmas fair is a 2000 sq meter large venue, where you can purchase handmade souvenirs or just enjoy the New Year's atmosphere.

      In the middle of the Red Square there are 23 colourful huts, which offer traditional Russian treats, such as pancakes with caviar, baked potato with mushrooms and salted cucumbers, and the like. Hot tea with gingerbreads or mulled wine with Vienna wafers and fried chestnuts will keep visitors warm.

      Famous Zhostovo painted trays, Khokhloma toys, and Orenburg scarfs, as well as modern art souvenirs, Christmas-tree decorations, New Year's gifts and what not is on sale in festively decorated huts and shops.

      Musicians, dancers, conjurers and clowns perform on two stages at the fair, Thursday through Sunday. Every weekend Father Frost and Snow Maiden with greetings and gifts show up at the fair.

      The event runs from November 30, 2016 to February 28, 2017.
