Knutsford Christmas Market

2nd and 3rd December 2023

Knutsford Christmas Market is a two-day festive street market that is held at the end of November or beginning of December each year. The market features feature over 120 traders per day selling the finest foods, drinks, crafts and gifts in the area – the perfect place to start your Christmas shopping!

The market is typically held across Princess Street, Silk Mill Street and Canute Place. You can find Santa’s Grotto in Silk Mill Street, a hot food and drink street market in Canute Place alongside incredible live entertainment and the funfair on Princess Street car park!

The market usually runs from 12-7pm on Saturday and 11am – 4pm on Sunday of the weekend. The Saturday market coincides with the Santa Parade at 5pm and the Christmas Light Switch On at 6pm.

In 2018 we introduced a Park and Ride service which offers a free shuttle bus service for market visitors, running from Booths Hall (WA16 8GZ) to Knutsford Bus Station. The shuttle runs for the duration of the market weekend, offering a free service back and forth to the town centre. The service was introduced to reduce burden on town centre car parks and offer more parking opportunities for visitors to the popular event.

With live entertainment, hot food, mulled wine and more – where better to get in the festive spirit?

Applications are open for an initial period of four weeks, after which point we begin allocating stalls until the market is full. We’ll continue to accept applications after the first deadline to fill any gaps, though availability will be limited and your application is less likely to be successful.

We receive a high volume of applications each year and unfortunately cannot offer a space to every single trader who applies, so please ensure to apply early if you’re interested in a space.
