Caerphilly Christmas Market & Lantern Parade

December 12, 9:00am - December 12, 8:00pm

Experience the sights, sounds and smells of Caerphilly town and Castle preparing for Christmas with delicious food, the smell of mulled wine, exciting street theatre and over 100 food, craft & gift stalls.

Find the perfect Christmas gifts at Caerphilly Christmas Market… whether it’s wine, liqueurs, chocolates, jewellery, or something a little more unusual. The Caerphilly Christmas Market will get you feeling festive as you browse the Christmas decorations and seasonal stalls (whilst successfully sampling some tasty food and drink of course!)

Don’t forget to visit the popular Farmers Market in the Twyn Community Centre, Caerphilly Craft Fair at the Cenotaph and Castle Court Craft & Food Market in Castle Court Shopping Centre. All these markets compliment the Caerphilly Christmas Market and the town’s mixture of independent & high street stores.

This magical market is a firm favourite both within Wales and beyond…
