Operated by Market Place Europe, Harrogate Christmas Fayre runs for three weeks from December 1 to 17 the Cambridge Street area with 50 traders based in chalets selling everything from unique gifts and decorations to delicious edible treats.
In addition to the chance to enjoy a truly Harrogate Christmas shopping experience, there will be music and entertainment to add to the perfect Christmas atmosphere whether you visit friends or family.
The free Candy Cane Express road train is also returning to transport fayre visitors in festive style between the Harrogate Christmas Fayre and Crescent Gardens.
