Christmas in Perpignan

It may seem early for some, but Perpignan is going full steam ahead with Christmas from Saturday 25th November!

Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift or simply soaking up the festive atmosphere, the lights will be on, the market will be open and the big wheel is readying itself to spin… and Santa Claus is coming to town.


We love strolling the streets of Perpignan any time of year, but under the twinkling lights with the odour of roasted chestnuts and mulled wine in the air, there’s no better time than Christmas!

The lights were switched on at 6pm on Saturday 25th November, with plenty of festive cheer and a grand Christmas parade to boot.


The second grand parade, with 10 floats and a procession 140 strong, is planned for the 9th December, leaving at 6.30pm. Round off the night with a live concert in front of the Office de Tourisme (place de l’Hôtel de ville).

Marché de Noël

Again from the 25th November, the banks of Quai Vauban welcome the festive red painted wooden chalets under twinkling lights. You can find beautiful, artisanal gifts for the whole family and enjoy some of the finer Christmas offerings such as oysters and Muscat.

Additional food and drink-oriented chalets will line the Allées Maillol (near the Palais de Congrès).

La Grande Roue

In Place de la Victoire, overlooking the historic Castillet, Perpignan’s very own Eye will whisk festive frolickers up, up and away. Ferris wheel fans can soar high above the town and take in the magical scene while the little ones enjoy the rides back on the ground.

Fair Rides

Not one but TWO Christmas fun fairs will throw open their doors in Place de la Catalogne (in front of the old Fnac building) and Place Arago.
