When do Christmas markets open in Lithuania this year?
If you’re trying to research the answer to this question, you may have run into some trouble… that’s because the opening dates for Christmas markets in Lithuania vary by town, city & region… plus huge Christmas markets as seen in Western European countries aren’t as common here.
Times are changing though, and big Christmas markets are becoming more popular, particularly in the capital – Vilnius, where several festive fairs pop up throughout the season.
And so, we created this page for you, so you can peep the opening dates for Lithuanias Christmas Markets and events quickly and at a glance.
We hope you find it helpful!
This list is by no means exhaustive, and includes mainly bigger Christmas markets that we could find official websites and dates for. Let us know in the comments if you have any more we should add.
NOTE: Most Christmas markets don’t announce their confirmed dates until a few months before, so please excuse the sparse list for the time being! We’ll be sure to update this list with more dates as soon as they are released. Let us know in the comments if you know of any we should add for 2023!
