Strokestown Christmas Market begins on Friday

The annual Strokestown Christmas Market kicks off on this Friday, 2nd of December, with the illumination of the town and Santa’s arrival being hosted by Our Voice FM.

The festivities will continue over a jam-packed weekend with live music, street entertainers, some very familiar children’s characters, face-painting, Christmas carols, games and many more enjoyable acts with some special surprises for everyone!

Bawn Street will be lined with traditional wooden chalets and gazebos and over the three days there will be 70 different market stalls brimming with a vast array of goods offering Christmas decorations, knitted goods, toys, candles, jewellery, ornaments and much more to help fill your Christmas stockings!

For the foodies, a selection of pizzas, crepes and hot delights will be available – and not forgetting those with a sweet tooth: there will be cookies, toasted marshmallows, candyfloss, cakes, and preserves, to mention just a few delights. Of course the custom of hot chocolate will be available free of charge to all the visitors to the market on Friday night.

Santa will be available to meet and greet on Friday evening! So save the dates and visit Strokestown Christmas Market. Check out the posters for times and activities to avoid disappointment.

*From 5.30 pm on Saturday, December 3rd, the 1st Christmas tractor run organised by the Tidy Town group and Kiltrustan Sports Club will be held.
