About Edinburgh’s Christmas

Edinburgh's Christmas is a spectacular, six-week season of festive entertainment in the heart of the city. Edinburgh’s Christmas runs from 18 November 2016 to 7 January 2017. Edinburgh's Christmas takes place in St Andrew Square, East Princes St Gardens, George Street and Festival Square, and features fantastic shows in the new Festival Square Theatre, as well as ice skating, markets and rides, including the Big Wheel and the 60-metre Star Flyer, with breathtaking views over the city. Plus we welcome the return of the Street of Light in an iconic new location on the west end of George Street! Illuminating Edinburgh’s New Town with a stunning light display set to music from celebrated local choirs and performers.

The festival is a fantastic Christmas celebration, and great fun for the whole family!
