Christmas fair returns to Paphos

art market technopolis 20 (3)

The festive season is upon us, and this year unlike the last one – we hope — allows for several Christmas-y events and pop-ups to take place. Technopolis 20 in Paphos couldn’t not take part in celebrating the holidays and supporting local art as its seventh Christmas art market returns this month.

Just before December rolls in, the Paphos cultural venue will host its annual market welcoming 20 artists, professional and amateur creators, designers and volunteer organisations to showcase their creations and exhibits, ideal for your Christmas gifts and not only. From 10am to 5pm on November 28, Technopolis 20 will fill with art, crafts, music and delicious treats.

Just like every other year, minus the previous one when the pandemic’s measures didn’t allow for Christmas markets, this one-day event will feature handmade creations such as jewellery, Christmas decorations and ornaments, ceramics, handbags, scarves, books, traditional products, sweets and many more. Whilst music plays, coffees are poured and cake is devoured, little ones will also get a chance to have some fun.

Whilst the market is on, two activities for children will take place. Nayia Panagiotou and George Middleton will hold a storytelling session, sharing stories and fairy tales from around the world. Two sessions will take place during the morning, the first one at 10am in English and the second at 11.30am in Greek. Then at 3pm, an arts & crafts €5 workshop with artist Christos Georgiades will teach children how to make their own Christmas ornaments. Limited seats are available so parents are advised to book a spot soon by calling the venue at 7000-2420. Whether browsing gifts, sipping on a hot beverage or joining an activity, the Christmas Art Market at Technopolis 20 is sure to bring on the holiday cheer that we so dearly missed!
