The Harbourside Christmas Market


The city’s historic waterfront will come to life with a 60-stall market that’s brimming with independent Bristol spirit, local creators, vintage and flea traders, street food, live music and festive drinks. 

The Watershed’s covered walkway will be transformed into a vibrant Makers’ Market, showcasing 45 of the city's brightest small businesses and providing a one-stop-shop for unique, alternative Christmas gift ideas. From small-batch infused Christmas tipples crafted by ​Espensen Spirit,​to handsewn leather wallets and Gingerbeard’s award-winning preserves; or from hand-poured candles and wheel-thrown ceramics to one-of-a-kind illustrations, there’ll be something for even the hardest-to-buy-for, all under one roof.

Alongside the Makers’ Market, visitors can expect to find a lip-smackingly good line-up of the South West's best street food. From NYC-style hotdogs, handmade Tibetan dumplings, award-winning wings, smoked tofu tacos and jackfruit gyros, or artisan pizzas fired with wood - all sustainably sourced and cooked from fresh.

And as great food needs great drinks, the market bar will be on-hand with some of the very best in festive bevs; artisan spiced Somerset cider, organic mulled wine, crisp local pilsners, and winter ales.

Across the five weekends there’ll be a jam-packed line up of live music, supplying the soundtrack to keep Christmas spirits high.
