Get into the holiday spirit!

The Town Hall Square Christmas Market opens today, but don’t forget about the International Women’s Club of Tallinn’s annual Christmas Bazaar on Sunday!

Christmas Bazaar

24 November, 11.00-16.00

Radisson Blu Hotel, Rävala pst 3, Tallinn

For the 8th year in a row, the International Women’s Club of Tallinn will organise the Christmas Bazaar. 26 Embassies will be taking part, and the IWCT will be selling their own handmade cards, handicrafts, and baked goods. The ever-popular Tombola (raffle) and the Silent Auction will both take  place as well.

Town Hall Square Christmas Market

22 November – 8 January

Get into the holiday spirit at the annual Christmas market. Browse the beautiful handicrafts and pottery of Estonian craftsmen and artists; enjoy traditional Estonian Christmas food, like blood sausage and sauerkraut. Sip mulled wine and  admire the enormous tree in the centre of the square. Children will get a chance to meet Father Christmas, and visit the animals at the small petting zoo.
