Candles in Candelara Feast
25 November- 17 December 2023. On the weekends market, Santa Claus, local food…
Every night, on the weekends from November 25th to December 17th, 2023, the medieval village of Candelara is lit by thousands of candles with Candles in Candelara, the candle festival.
At Candles in Candelara, this year at its 20th edition, visitors can enjoy a number of events: Christmas market, nativity scenes, shows, music, street artists and local delicacies.
Over 60 wooden stalls sell handcrafted objects, gift ideas and candles of every kind and size.
It is also possible to taste traditional dishes in two large heated facilities: polenta with mushrooms, salted codfish with potatoes, grilled meat, piadina, fried olives, apple pancakes, roasted chestnuts and new wine.
There is also a narrow alley covered with snow for children. In Santa’s Elves’ Workshop, children can work with different materials (clay, wax, paper, wood) to make Christmas decorations, as well as meet Santa Claus to hand him their letters.
Opening hour: from 10 am to 8 pm
Entrance with a fee>>
