From 19th November to 27th December 2022
This year's Poznań Bethlehem will take place in several locations. On November 19th, the Christmas market will start at Plac Wolności. It will take a bit longer than in previous editions and will last until December 27th. You can expect festive, holiday atmosphere, mulled wine or cocoa, as well as treats, gifts and additional events.
On the second weekend of December, that is December 9-11, 2022, it is worth visiting the Kasprowicz Park. In the vicinity of Arena sport hall, the icon of modernist architecture from Poznań, another edition of the fair will appear, and the International Ice Sculpture Festival will also be held. Artists from around the world will again pick up long, hammers, chainsaws, and even irons to turn blocks of ice into works of art in front of the audience. This part of the event will last until December 18.
This is still not all, because there will also be an opportunity to feel the atmosphere of Poznań's districts at the turn of the 20th century. The third cosy version of Poznań Bethlehem will appear on the newly renovated Łazarski Market Square (Rynek Łazarski)
Do not miss the International Ice Sculpture Festival that will take place on Poznań Old Market Square. Contestants from all over the world will turn massive blocks of ice into works of art before your very eyes.
