After a two-year absence, Ibiza Town's celebrated Christmas market comes back to the Vara de Rey central square in the old town.

Holy Shit Xmas Market, Ca'n Pere Mussona

Fashion, jewellery and art down on the farm for the Holy Shit Christmas market. All proceeds from food, drink and stallholder rents support the upkeep of this working farm. Go and hug the animals and bless the vegetables. Located between Santa Eulalia and San Carlos, this makes for some great rural Christmas fun. Mulled wine is on offer to warm your bones.

Las Dalias gets started with its Christmas market in San Carlos, starting at 17:00 on the first day. Look out for a visit from Santa Claus on the 23rd from 19:00. Here, there are lots of stalls selling Christmas decorations, jewellery, belts, handbags made by hand and crafts from all over the world. A must try is a glass of glühwein, the warm, spiced wine from Germany that has become a Las Dalias Christmas market tradition.

When: 14 December 2018 - 5 January 2019


Starting very soon, Atzaró near San Lorenzo, has two markets during the month of December 2018 - great for some last minute present shopping.

When: 16 and 23 December 2018

Casa Maca Christmas market

A new event for the whole family, based on the Christmas markets of Germany and Austria, at Casa Maca outside Ibiza Town.

Residents of Ibiza and Formentera can enter a contest for the best Christmas tree too.
