How about travelling back in time to the Middle-Age? This is what Provins and the association “Les Gardes Foires de Champagne” offer as Christmas entertainments including a medieval Christmas Market that’s coming back on December 14 and 15, 2019.
With this Christmas Market 2019, over 40 craftsmen and demonstraters will present their products: calligraphers, hatter, heraldic specialist, blacksmith, cabinetmaker and more. This is the occaiosn for us to discover rare and almsot disappeared works and know-hows and to meet artisans who'll be happy to share their passions.
But Provins medieval Christmas market is also a collection of animations for everyone. Children will be over the moon with the ice skating rink, the fire breather, the stilt-walker, as well as the advent calendar for children and the tombola for adults, and of course, Santa Claus!
Highlight of this edition, the living Saint-François nativity scene. Saint-François was the first man to recreate a nativity scene in 1223 near Greccio and this year, about 50 actors will make us reliver the story of the nativity with a beef, a donkey, a wolf, sheep and an hawk.
And in the night, the market will be candlelit!
