About Us

Debrecen celebrates the beginning of Advent with candle-lighting next to the Christmas tree of the city. During 4 Sundays of Advent, extraordinary programmes, festive thoughts, candle-lighting and meeting at the Great Church of Debrecen welcome visitors at the main square of the city. Events and concerts on the stage will provide continuous excitement before the last day of the week.

The festive lights of Debrecen are traditionally lit on the first Sunday of Advent.

The Advent Christmas Fair of Debrecen opens on 23rd November at Kossuth Square and in Piac Street. Among others, the fair provides visitors with unique and traditional products, irresistible delicacies and hot wines in nearly 100 wooden booths.

The Advent Christmas Fair is complemented by a giant wheel with a height of 45 meter to the delight of a great number of people. The monumental structure is available during the Advent period.
