This year New Year Fair starts in St Petersburg on December 24, 2016 and will last till January 8, 2017. This is the 11th time when New Year Fair takes place in our city and about 3 million guests are expected from Russia and abroad. The city government is responsible for all Fair events and Pioneer Square (Pionerskaya ploschad’) was chosen to be the main Fair location. All New Year amazing events will take place here.
Several years ago representatives of some foreign countries decided to take part in St Petersburg New Year events. As a result more and more foreign marquees join St Petersburg New Year Fair every year. Originally this Fair was planned as a business project for selling souvenirs and food but in 2008 the new skating ring appeared. It has been functioning since that time and will be open in 2017 again. The main characters of all events are, of course, traditionally Father Frost and his granddaughter. Fair itself is a combination of different concerts and entertaining programs. They will include Good Deeds Day, Treats Day, Fairy Tales Day, Beautiful Girl Day, Folk Handicrafts Day, Handsome Man Day. Quite popular Russian and even foreign stars are going to participate in the activities within Fair.
The marquees from foreign countries will play the main role in New Year Fair. Their visitors will have the opportunity to find out how Christmas and New Year are celebrated in such countries as China, India, Germany, Italy, and to try their traditional food. More than 20 countries have confirmed their participation in St Petersburg New Year Fair now.
The little Fair visitors will enjoy communication with Father Frost and will meet the most popular cartoons and fairy tales characters.
Surely Christmas and New Year holidays in Saint-Petersburg will become the most joyful and unforgettable time of the year.0
