Ring in some holiday cheer by trying some food from the traditional stalls, or browse gifts from retail stands.

Here’s all you need to know about Glasgow Christmas Market 2021, including when it starts and where it will take place.

When does the Glasgow Christmas Market 2021 open?

The Christmas Market on St Enoch Square will start on Sunday November 21st and finish on Tuesday December 23rd, running each day from 9am to 10pm.

Is Glasgow’s George Square Christmas Market cancelled?

Usually at Glasgow Christmas Market, there are two markets, on St Enoch Square and George Square.

On October 27th, it was announced that the George Square Christmas Market has been cancelled for 2021.

The company who runs this market, Market Place Europe, said that the event couldn’t go ahead due to experiencing access difficulties to the site because of COP26.

“It’s 100% been cancelled,” said a spokesperson for the company. “The reason is following COP26 the council couldn’t guarantee the accessibility to George Square because they don’t know how many people will be staying behind.

“There could be activities going on that we don’t know about and we need to have 100% access to the site.”

St Enoch Square features Glasgow’s quaint Christmas Village, with more than 50 seasonal stalls selling various festive foods.

From bratwurst and crispy duck rotisserie to sweet crepes and hog roast, there’s something for everyone’s taste buds.

On George Square, the stands usually focus more on artisan products and festive crafts, showcasing the work of more than 50 traders from around the world.

George Square is also normally the location of Glasgow’s fifteen-foot Christmas tree.

There have also previously been rides to try out in George Square, including a vintage helter-skelter, a classic carousel, and Santa’s enormous advent calendar that counts down the days to Christmas.

However, it’s not known if these attractions will still appear in St Enoch Square or other locations this year, or disappear altogether.

Traditional German bars are also dotted around the square, serving warm Glühwein and regional beers.
