From 19th November to 30th December 2021

 

Winterfest in Novi Sad, the second largest city in Serbia and the capital of the Province of Vojvodina, is the first and oldest Christmas Market in country.

 

Since 2016, Winterfest has a large number of visitors from other parts of Serbia and other countries in the region. The biggest attraction is the big Singing Christmas Tree, where children and adult choirs from all over Vojvodina perform every day.

 

Since this is a multicultural province, the choirs will sing in 10 different languages (Serbian, Hungarian, Slovakian, Ruthenian, Croatian, Ladin, Yiddish, English, German and Russian).

 

Around 50 wooden chalets are set up in the historic center of Novi Sad - Liberty Square. There is also the “Playground in hay” where city kids eager for natural materials can play carefree. After 30 years, organizers of the Winterfest have returned “fijakers”, horse-drawn carriages, to the streets of Novi Sad.
