The medieval city of Provins is transformed into a real Santa Claus village for the end of year celebrations. On the weekend of December 10 and 11, 2022, many activities await you there with your family. On the program: markets, guided tours and workshops!

Just 1 hour from Paris, the beautiful medieval city of Provins welcomes you December 10 and 11 for a weekend of magical Christmas-themed entertainment.

On December 10 and 11, the city of Provins is not organizing one, but three markets to celebrate the holidays with great fanfare. There is therefore a medieval market with around sixty demonstrator craftsmen who will take you on a journey through time, the farm producers market organized by the Ferme du Châtel to savor the specialties of the region and the traditional Christmas market and his free entertainment for the whole family with the presence of the Santa Claus.

Several guided tours are also proposed, one on the theme of the feast in the Middle Ages, others dramatized on the “ladies and knights” or the “legends and beliefs” of the time. We also note the fire showsthe feast of the troubadours where you have lunch in the company of acrobats… To keep young and old busy throughout the weekend.
